Did you enjoy your time at McDaniel? How?
Yes! I made strong, everlasting friendships, connected with my professors, and was given incredible opportunities along the way.
Who do you think is/was your best mentor(s)?
I think Dr. Ferraris from the Chemistry department because he made me appreciate my liberal arts education and helped me figure out what I wanted to do directly after college.
What is your best memory at McDaniel?
I don’t think I have a specific memory. My favorite memories, overall, are spending these last four years laughing and struggling together with my best friend and roommate, Rayva. College would not have been the same without you!
What were some of the challenges you encountered and how did you overcome them?
I think McDaniel’s need to charge you for about everything except breathing mad budgeting really hard. I didn’t really overcome it, I am still poor. Besides that, McDaniel has no actual pre-med major so it was difficult to plan my schedule.
What are your plans for after graduation?
Shortly after graduation I will attend Johns Hopkins University for their Post-Bac Health Science Intensive to receive a masters and hopefully get into medical school.
What advice can you give to those not graduating?
Stay on top of your finances. Fight for what you want and you deserve. Trust and respect your professors. Oh, and don’t park in faculty parking because campo’s tickets add up.
Is there anything else you want to share with the McDaniel community?
Good luck, y’all.
