I grew up in San Diego close to the US-Mexico border. I went to UC Berkeley for undergrad where I studied Molecular and Cell Biology and Anthropology. After graduating from college, I did three years of research in the field of public health and volunteer work all over the Bay Area. I am now a Drew/UCLA medical student and my specialty interests are infectious diseases, emergency medicine, and oncology.
