Being a recipient of this generous scholarship will ease the financial burden on my family and provide me more time to focus on my studies, pursue research, engage in internship opportunities and continue volunteering in the community.  In the spring of 2022 I will graduate and begin the next chapter of my journey in medical school to become an oncologist.  As a cancer survivor myself, my life’s passion is to help people through medicine, empathize with the struggles in fighting the cancerous beast and offer my patients hope for the future.
