What are you involved in at Wayne State?

I'm involved in American Medical Students Association, Honors Student Association, research, volunteering and a campus job.

How has Honors prepared you for your accomplishments?

Honors has connected me to a lot of knowledgeable people who have mentored me through my time here at Wayne State. The emphasis on each of the four pillars has allowed me to become a well-rounded person, and I discovered passions and interests through the curriculum. I feel well-prepared for my life as I plan to enter medical school.

How has your major shaped your career path?

I am majoring in Nutrition and Food Science and am in the MedStart program at Wayne State. I believe that food is the original medicine and plays a huge role in our health. I'm excited to be able to use my major in helping my patients improve their diet and lifestyle when I become a physician.

What's your most memorable experience in Honors?

I have lived in Honors campus housing since I was a freshman. This has definitely been the highlight of my Honors experience because I met so many new friends through the living community. Eating, studying, and hanging out together has helped our class become a family, and I know this family will be with me even when we graduate. The connections and friendships I've made through Honors are definitely the things I'll remember down the road.

How has your perception of Detroit changed since attending WSU?

Living and studying in Detroit has allowed me to see the city's rejuvenation first-hand. In my three years here so far, I've already seen so many new businesses and developments coming in to the area, such as the new iBio building, the Little Caesars Arena, the new Mike Illitch School of Business and the Q-LINE! Detroit has every kind of food that you could ever want and more. There's also so many beautiful places like Belle Isle and Campus Martius. The city has definitely changed for the better and I believe it will continue to grow
