Q: Why did you decide to be pre-med?
A: I’ve always had a desire to do biomedical or medical things. I started out as BME and changed to pre-med freshman year after shadowing and seeing what they did. It really turned me to helping people in that way and pursuing that career path. When I first started shadowing a neurosurgeon and seeing how he interacted with people, I felt that that’s how I wanted to be. I think neurosurgery is a system that you can get really involved in. I think you can have a field that’s very specific but gives you a lot of opportunities to problem solve.
