Year at UW: Second

Hometown: Seattle, WA

About me: Hello, everyone! I am a sophomore in Bioengineering who is aspiring to go to medical school with the ultimate goal of pursuing a career in cancer research. I was born and raised in Seattle, so I am extremely familiar with the area and have a long list of recommended spots for food, bubble tea, etc. I am a strong believer that you should do what makes you happy in life and hope that, through mentoring, I can help others find the path they wish to take! Despite my heavy course schedule, I always leave room for fun and self-care. I love to draw, sing, read, write, and play arcade games! I was admitted into the Bioengineering program through Early Admission and am familiar with the application process- I would absolutely love to help anyone interested in applying. I also hope to provide as much help as possible in completing STEM prerequisites. Furthermore, I have experience applying to scholarships and in research and would be more than happy to provide any assistance in those areas. Feel free to contact me about absolutely any questions regarding college - or even life in general! I will happily lend an ear :)
