Biography

I am interested in health care. I plan to pursue a B.S. in Human Biology or Psychology or both! I am currently working a computational neurobiology lab, where I help create computer algorithms to represent neural circuitry. I am also volunteering at Arbor Free Clinic (one of Stanford's free clinic) as a Patient Health Navigator and Spanish interpreter. In the future, I would like to go to medical school and pursue an MD-MPA. As a FLI student, I enjoy giving back to my community. I am part of The Phoenix Scholars Program - a program aimed to help low income, first gen high school students get into college - as a programmer.
