What is your major?
Since I was about 10, I knew I wanted to be a doctor. It was just something that always interested me. I knew the Biomedical Sciences program was very good at UCF so that is what I chose to major in. As bad as it sounds, I really enjoy math and science classes and I am good at them too.
Why did you decide to become a part of EXCEL/COMPASS?
AS mentioned above, Science and math classes are something I enjoy. I was looking on the internet before arriving at UCF for different clubs and organizations I would enjoy. I came across EXCEL and decided I may as well apply. If I get in, great. If not, no big deal. I am thankful and very excited I got accepted because I found many benefits that come with the program.
How do you think EXCEL/COMPASS will help you succeed in your first year of college?
EXCEL has some benefits that the non-EXCEL classes do not. The idea that if you get a "B" or above on a math test and do not have to do any lab hours is my favorite. The non-EXCEL classes have to do hours every week regardless of their test scores. The combining of trigonometry and pre-calculus classes will take one semester of math off my plate and combine it into one. All these together are going to make my life easier and my transition to UCF easier.
Tell us one unique fact about you.
For four years of my life, I actually lived in Europe. Two years in Sweden and two years in Wales. My dad's job took my family all over. While living there I also got to visit many countries over there including Spain, Italy, Germany, and Greece. Moving and traveling is something I am very used to and have always enjoyed.
