CU: What inspired you to pursue Chemistry?
I felt it was diverse enough to open doors to many types of professional schools or graduate schools.
CU: How was the transition towards your next assignment since graduation from CU?
Transitioning to Medical School was hard, but I was very well trained. I had a solid background in basic sciences and was trained in effective studies strategies, data collection and gathering resources.
CU: What was your next assignment after graduation? (internship, graduate/medical school, job, etc.)
CU: Did your learning experience from CU help you in any way in your career profession?
Definitely. I was given so many opportunities to learn, collaborate and participate in research that transitioning into the Medical Profession was not stressful.
CU: What was your favorite class/lab?
Probably Biochemistry - it was a small class so my classmates and I really bonded in the lab and doing homework together. It was also very helpful to have taken before Medical School.
CU: Which class/lab was the most challenging during your time at CU?
Physical Chemistry was so hard!
CU: What is the one thing that you would go back in time and change if you could?
I don’t think I would have changed any of the Chemistry courses I took, but I would have added Spanish classes or business classes to help me be a more well rounded professional.
CU: What would you give to present and future students as advice?
If you are seeking professional school, you can absolutely accomplish this with a degree from Cameron. Take a lot of initiative to get volunteer hours, clinical experience and develop relationships with the professors. Be present! Be active!
