I am currently pursuing my B.S. in Biochemistry, and I hope to go on to medical school afterward. I have type one diabetes, so I want to become a Pediatric Endocrinologist to help kids that also have diabetes. This summer, I hope to learn new techniques in the lab and how to overcome the obstacles that are going to arise when doing research. In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with friends, watching Jeopardy!, and playing the piccolo in the Bengal Marching and Pep Bands.
