Why did you decide to participate in Arch?
I decided to participate in Arch because it seemed like this was my best shot at adjusting to NU before classes began, along with being around people who looked like me. I knew in theory that NU is a PWI, and looking back that time with people who came from a similar background was crucial to my survival and success at NU.

What is one of your favorite memories from Arch?
My favorite memory is in between being a NU Bioscientist mentor for three years now or the bonding moments between friends at Bio&Chem EXCEL. Being a mentor has been a privilege, getting to see my mentees grow during their first year and even after as sophomores and juniors. Then thinking back to Bio&Chem EXCEL, I made friends for life, people that have helped me succeed and thrive at NU. Arch Scholars truly shaped my NU experience and I am forever thankful.

What are your plans after graduation?
I plan to take a gap year and work as a Patient Care Tech in L&D and then go to medical school with the ultimate goal to be an OB/GYN.

What is your favorite class you've taken at Northwestern?
My favorite class has been History of Reproduction taught by Dr. Sarah Rodriguez
