Why I chose IU Northwest

It’s close to home, but at the same time, it carries a lot of prestige for the sciences, especially pre-medicine. 

What I like most about being a RedHawk

Campus diversity, in which a faculty priority is academic success and preparation for what is to come next. The feeling of discovery to learn about the world outside of the classroom. IU Northwest has given me the opportunity to learn in major cities like Chicago, Washington D.C., Indianapolis, and even overseas in Bilbao, Spain.

My future plans

Continue giving back by going to medical school abroad and becoming a physician and founder of a home which helps to provide low-cost medical services to girls with underage pregnancies and women who come from abused homes.
