Rutgers University

Bachelors Degree of Science, Exercise Science and Sport Studies

One of the most profound statements that I've heard in recent times was, “your network is your net worth.” Reflecting back on my journey to medical school, I can attest to these words.

I came to Rutgers University with suitcases in one hand, and my dream of becoming a physician in the other. Being the first in my family to purse a career in medicine, I was unaware of the academic credentials, research experience, and clinical exposure needed to be a competitive applicant to medical school. If it weren’t for the wealth I acquired from relationships and connections I developed as an undergraduate student in the Access Med Program at Rutgers University, I would not be where I am today.

As a participant in the Access Med Program, I received academic support, gained clinical exposure, and met minority physicians from medical schools and hospitals across the country. Through these experiences I built a network of physician mentors, medical students, and undergraduate students who’s support and advice and helped me become a competitive applicant for medical school.

Outside of the classroom, I spent my weekends cheering on Rutgers University's Football and Soccer Teams, mentoring and tutoring high school students from New Brunswick, NJ, and building friendships that will last me a lifetime.
