Director of Design
I am currently a senior at Eastwood Academy High School. I plan to study biomedical engineering next year because I am passionate about making diagnostic technology both available and economically feasible for developing countries around the world, particularly the Philippines (where I'm from). Reflecting on my high school career, it frustrated me to think that I was able to be a part of these types of mentorship programs and learn about the college admission process, financial aid, summer opportunities, etc., while many others are left without support. As a SWAG to College mentor, I am able to pay forward the guidance that I was given. I believe that everyone should have access to higher education regardless of their socioeconomic status or background.
