I worked hard in all of my classes and was accepted into a research lab my sophomore year, but my accomplishments came from persistence and determination. I will now continue on my education in a Masters of Science Program at The University of California, Irvine in Biological Sciences and Biotechnology where I plan to pursue a medical degree afterwards. I hope that students take advantage of the support that CSU provides, and I will always be a RAM at heart!
