  • Brief Profile: I had a pretty cliched experience of a first generation immigrant; my mother was a housekeeper and my father a street vendor. I attended a title 1 high school with a 40% graduation rate and went to a public city college while working to pay my way through school and help out my parents along the way. Life wasn't easy by any measure, but I had the benefit of growing up in a loving family with parents, family, and friends who always believed in me. Today, not only am I the first person in my family to graduate from college, I'm also going to be a doctor!

    Things to take away from my experience: apply EARLY! I was verified a few days after submitting my primary application.

    I hope my experience here can in some small way help someone else fulfill their dreams as well.
