“The School of Public Health immediately helped me feel included in the Aggie family.”

 

My parents came to the United States shortly before I was born. With their support, I was the first in my family to complete high school and an undergraduate college degree.

I have to admit, after I graduated from a high school class of 50 and received my undergraduate degree in Health Administration from a much smaller university, I was not sure if Texas A&M was for me. Once I got here, however, the School of Public Health immediately helped me feel included in the Aggie family.

Currently, I am Vice President of the Association of Future Healthcare Leaders, an organization that helps network students within industry. The Aggie network has connected me to so many former students in healthcare that have been willing to assist me. My family and the Aggie network, combined with a great education, have prepared me to move forward following graduation and improve healthcare for as many people as I can.
