Biomedical Engineering ~

Short-Term Goals

My short-term goal is to successfully complete my academic career as a co-terminal student with a bachelor's degree in biomedical engineering and a master's degree in chemical engineering by earning good grades and remaining involved in student organizations. It is crucial, in my opinion, to partake in student organizations because I believe that this will make my undergraduate career more meaningful and memorable and I will also gain leadership skills by assuming additional leadership roles in student organizations. I would also like to develop my public speaking skills to better represent the communities to which I belong. I will tackle life's challenges day-by-day and try to see the positive aspect in every situation. 

Long-Term Goals

I plan on making a positive impact in peoples' lives by pursuing my career as a biomedical/chemical engineer. I see my growth as a function of community growth and, for this reason, I would like to contribute to the medically impaired community by using my skills as a biomedical engineer to develop solutions to problems that this community faces. Throughout my life, I will always remember and treasure the things that matter to me most such as my faith and family.
