We are living in an unprecedented time with this pandemic, and I’m entering a profession that is essential in helping alleviate and combat it. So I plan on changing the world one patient at a time.

You’ve got this! 100%! Whatever obstacles come your way, you will overcome and you will persevere. It may not feel like it in the moment, but the strength you possess and gain as you go through college will carry you through.

Mercer has allowed me to meet some pretty incredible people and walk away with friendships that are going to last a lifetime.
