I began my journey in science in 2015. At the time, I was coming from a low income community and underserved high school where I didn't even know what a PhD was or what conducting research meant.

Coming to SJSU introduced me to the mentors that would see my potential and help transform me into the scientist I am becoming. Thanks to the resources and guidance I received at SJSU, I will begin pursuing my PhD in neuroscience at the Scripps Research Institute starting fall 2021.
