"My lab is interested in natural products. In other words, we're interested in molecules that we get from nature. If you go to a hospital and you look at the list of drugs they prescribe to patients, you'll find that roughly 75 percent of those are derived from natural products. Those drugs are not something that chemists have invented. They're made from molecules that we've borrowed from nature."

I chose Drexel for a few reasons. A friend of mine graduated from the College of Medicine in 2014, and she always spoke so highly of Drexel. Her strong recommendation planted the seed. I also knew that I wanted to attend to an institution that I could grow with, and I wanted to be in a city that would allow me to thrive and find my passion within medicine, so Drexel ended up being the best fit for me.

The coursework, in general, really prepared me for my first year of medical school. I noticed that several of my classmates who didn’t do a program like this struggled during that first year. I’d already seen immunology, for example, and done well in it, so I was able to help other students in the labs and in the classes.

My family lives in New York City, so one of the first things I looked for was location. I didn't want to be too far from family. With Philadelphia being less than two hours away, it was an ideal place for me. I had spoken to my mentor at Dartmouth and he pointed out Drexel's post-baccalaureate programs. I did some research and found that the Biological Science program fit my needs.
