What are your plans after your studies?
I am honored and privileged to say that I will begin my medical school journey in the fall of 2022. I am super excited to begin this next chapter of my life, as I know it will be a long one. I’ve been looking forward to it since the day I moved to this country, and now I’ve realized it’s just the beginning of hopefully bigger and better things.
What is the most important advice you would give to a freshman entering college?
First of all, I can’t believe that four years of bachelor’s degree has passed so quickly, to the point that it’s my turn to give advice. The most important advice I can give, and the one I received myself four years ago: ENJOY IT ALL! Unlike high school, middle school is a different world. This is not only a change in academia, but it is also a time of growth and development. It’s a time when many are learning to live independently, grow into adults, and seek new adventures. My biggest advice would be to enjoy everything, try new things, take new classes, meet new people, and don’t stress about the little things. Life is much bigger than we think, and it is better to enjoy it as much as possible!
Where do you see yourself in fifteen years?
I hope to have completed my residency in a specialty that I enjoy and feel connected to. I also hope to have my own medical practice here in Nevada, contributing and giving back to the people and communities in which I grew up and helped me become the man I am today.
