Why did you choose to pursue your degree at USC?

USC is a place like no other and I couldn’t wait to join the Trojan Family. I’m from a town where there are less people there than there are just on USC’s campus. In the heart of Los Angeles, California, there are so many opportunities to serve our community and learn from new experiences!

What is one of your favorite memories from your program?

Doing my undergraduate research projects in vastly different health areas including colorectal cancer research & astrobiology! You can only do that at a place like USC!

What course in your program did you enjoy the most and why?

PM 503: Practice of Public Health was my favorite course because it taught me diverse perspectives from people currently working in the public health field!

What advice do you have for incoming students?

Be passionate about what you do and really listen.

What are you planning to do after graduation?

Enter the Master of Public Health Program at USC Keck School of Medicine!
