I am a second year medical student at NSU-COM in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Prior to starting medical school, I was a middle school science teacher at Hartman Middle School in Houston ISD through Teach For America. After that, I continued learning about the K-12 educational landscape while working at Safal Partners, an education management consulting firm, as their Senior Analyst. While in the classroom, I LOVED sharing my passion for learning and science with my middle school students. To this day, I still keep in touch with many of my students and they continue to share their academic highs and lows with me. Programs like SWAG provide the structural support that my students need as they face the challenges of high school and preparing for the college application process. Thus, I strongly believe in the mission of SWAG and I am excited to help students achieve their dreams of attending the college of their choice.
