I recently was admitted into the University of Michigan Medical School, where I hope to pursue my dream of becoming a doctor. Though I don’t know what kind of doctor I want to be just yet, I hope to one day continue my journey as a Wolverine by working for the University of Michigan Hospital.
What was your most defining moment at UM-Dearborn?
My most defining moment at UM-Dearborn was when my student organization, UM-Dearborn Wishmakers—an organization that is a chapter of Make-A-Wish, Michigan—raised and donated $4000 after two years of being active. It felt very rewarding to have donated to such a great cause after working extremely hard with my fellow students. I’ve met amazing people throughout my four-year journey on this campus, and I feel as though the friends I've made have become my second family.
