Q: What is your major? 

A: Applied health science geared toward a pre-physician's assistant path.

Q: What is your hometown?

A: Southfield, Michigan.

Q: Why did you choose BGSU?

A: I chose to attend BGSU because of the positive experiences I've had with the University's faculty members and students. From the first time I took a tour of BGSU until now, BGSU has made me feel welcome. I also feel special and included, which is something I did not feel from any other college I have visited or applied to. This warm welcome is what makes me so excited to step onto campus in the fall and begin my life after high school as a Falcon!

Q: Do you already have any BGSU spirit gear? 

A: Yes, I have a few BGSU items. So far, I have BGSU shirts and socks, a pennant and even lip balm I picked up during the preview day in October. That has really come in handy — especially in this cold, Michigan weather!

Q: What did you ask for as a high school graduation gift?

A: I have not thought about what I want as a graduation gift yet, but I wouldn't mind receiving money from family and friends as a gift because I am currently saving money toward a big trip I am planning to take with my best friend in two years! #korea2021

Q: How do you stand out in high school?
