About Me: 

I enjoy spending time outdoors playing sports, including basketball, volleyball, and tennis. My favorite part of HOSA is definitely the community of friends built through volunteering and definitely competitions. I usually travel during the summer, but that was put on hold this summer due to the pandemic. I love meeting new people, and I look forward to making new friends this school year!

About Me: 

I love working out, knitting, and napping in my free time! My favorite part of this organization is the sense of community that HOSA has provided for me since high school. I also think competitions are uniquely fun and spark the overly competitive side in me. I am also an avid volunteer for Habitat for Humanity and the mental health ambassador for Texas Pre-Dental Society. This past summer I took a couple of road trips and applied to dental school.

About Me: 

Hey HOSA! I enjoy spending time with friends, family and dogs of course. When I'm not working on my pre-med or classes for my major, I am obsessed with board games, movies and TV shows. I love HOSA for all the opportunities it gives us and for the social aspect. It helped me make a bunch of friends my past two years in college. Over the summer I took some classes, social distanced with friends and family and recently celebrated my 21st birthday :)

Hey HOSA! I've been really obsessed with Squid Game recently, I would definitely check it out on Netflix if you haven't yet. I also enjoy hiking around Austin. My best advice for college students would be to take care of yourself. You need to first be healthy, in order to become successful.
