AIM Foundation UH Tier One Scholar
I am a very motivated but fun-loving individual. I love being involved in campus activities, and have decided to further immerse myself in the college experience by pledging a fraternity. Though I am quite social and enjoy having a good time, my education is prioritized – I do not plan to stray from the rigorous 3-4 BS/MD program for which I have been selected to be a participant.
Campus and Community InvolvementCurrently my time is entirely utilized; I am pledging Tau Kappa Epsilon, taking a full 18 hours of honors courses, a new member of AMSA, as well as attempting to maintain some semblance of a social life. Though time is always in short supply, I enjoy each activity that I participate in to the utmost extent.
Awards and Honors
I have received many honors throughout my high school career, the most memorable of which are those associated with my Academic Decathlon team. Though my senior year was the most lucrative in terms of medals, more importantly each year that I was able to participate we placed in the top five teams at our regional competition. Individual awards are always nice, but the camaraderie and success of our team are what mean most to me.
Though I am not taking any foreign language hours right now, schedule permitting, I plan on becoming fluent in Spanish and utilizing the study abroad stipend from the Tier One scholarship to visit either Spain or a Spanish-speaking South American country before graduation.
I am not involved in a research project at the moment but plan on participating once I become more acclimated to the college environment and workload.
Presently I am a member of the new 3-4 program at the University of Houston; if all goes according to plan I will be attending either UTMB or UT Health in the fall of 2016. The medical field has always been of interest to me – I could think of nothing more rewarding than having the privilege to work in an area that I enjoy as well as being able to help those around me.
