About Me: I play piano since I was six years old and I love playing piano while my brother is singing or playing violin!
I love how members and officers are really close with each other in HOSA! Also the information that is being shared in HOSA is absolutely unique and I find them really useful in my premed journey.
Right now I am also an officer in Women in medicine which is another Pre health organization only for women! currently I am working as a TA for CH301. Both these positions are challenging but yet interesting!

Classification: Junior

Major: Biochemistry Major, Business Minor, Pre-Health Professions Certificate

Hometown: Austin, TX

About Me: In my free time, I enjoy being with friends and family, exploring new places in Austin, trying new things, and baking. I really love that HOSA has provided me with a community of like-minded individuals that are always ready to help each other out. Over the summer, I competed in the HOSA ILC with my partner, was a counselor for a health sciences summer camp, and watched a lot of Netflix. Besides HOSA, I am a member of the Global Health Alliance, which is an organization that partners with other institutions to work towards global health equity, and part of IMSA.

Classification: Senior

Major: Petroleum Engineering, Pre-Med

Hometown: Houston, TX

About Me: In my free time I love hanging out with my family and friends. In addition, I love trying new restaurants, baking random recipes I find online, learning new dances, and running! My favorite way to unwind is through blasting music in the car and going for a drive. I really enjoy being in HOSA because of the close knit community that somehow manages to create a welcoming environment even on zoom. Also, HOSA has amazing guest speakers that grow my excitement and passion about pursuing my career in Medicine. This summer, I took a bunch of classes, made chocolate banana bread a billion times, and rewatched every episode of Degrassi!
