My major is Molecular Biology and Microbiology and I am a sophomore. I graduated from Everglades High School in Miramar, FL and started going to UCF in 2009. My favorite professor is Dr. Young who taught me Pre‐Calculus during my freshman year. She was really helpful and provided a lot of examples which made it easier to understand the concepts. My favorite hobbies are watching movies and hanging out with friends. What I love about the GEMS Program is that it provides me an opportunity to share my experiences, both good and bad, with other EXCEL girls. It allows me to show them that if I can do it, they can do it too.
