Class of 2021

Hometown: Richmond Hill, NY

Major: Biology

I chose Queens College because...

I was accepted to be a Macaulay Honors scholar. This is a scholarship for students who obtained great test scores in high school but also showed themselves to be well-rounded. I was part of 3 clubs, representative in an honor society and the manager for my high school soccer team!

A fun fact about me is...

that I am in a research lab where I do experiments on tiny zebrafish. I get to work with mutant fishes and brainstorm and test out treatments to help the sick fishes.

A few of my life goals are...

to become a doctor, to live in LA and to own a few cats and horses. I also hope to be able to travel the world and see all the Broadway shows I want!

My favorite class at Queens College is...

biochemistry. Biochemistry combined my two favorite fields of science, and it was so interesting to learn about the millions of little reactions that go into doing big tasks such as digesting food.

I'm passionate about...

Yoga and Mindfulness Journalism Politics Mentoring Medicine
