THEODORE ROOSEVELT HIGH SCHOOL | BIOLOGY
"The community at Northeastern is great. Everyone is welcoming, friendly and positive. I am a very extroverted person, so that's why the sense of community here is my favorite thing, as well as the diversity.
I plan to become a doctor in my future career and will be interacting with so many patients from different backgrounds and different countries. The diversity at NEIU and my friendships with people from different cultures will help me to understand my patients and prepare me to be a better doctor.
I love my biology major, and it’s the major I need to become a cardiac surgeon. But I also really love to learn about the human body. What is so cool is NEIU has an anatomy and physiology class that biology majors take. We also have a cadaver lab, so we get to see the human body from the inside and just learn better. As a hands-on learner that helps a lot.
I have been involved with so many different organizations and clubs here and get a chance to be someone my peers can find and ask for help. I love how being involved gives me a chance to represent students."
