Hello! I am a Princeton undergraduate student pursuing a degree in Molecular Biology or Chemistry with a minor in Global Health Policy. Although I am A STEM major on the premed track at Princeton, I am exploring courses in all fields – from Philosophy to Latin American Studies to French and History. As I reflect on my own experiences in varying academic environments – from elementary and middle school in Costa Rica to High School in California and a College career at Princeton – I understand and appreciate the need for personalized guidance that fits each students unique skills and circumstances. Beyond academic interests, I am very passionate about environmental research and advocacy and am especially fond of the outdoors (hiking, camping, beaches, etc). I also love to run, listen to music – from classic rock to Spanish guitar – and spend time with friends.
