Why did you choose to attend Medgar Evers College?
My journey to Medgar Evers College was by the guidance of God. I ﬁrst enrolled at Brooklyn College but because Medgar Evers College was closer to my home, I chose to attend the school closer to me due to ﬁnancial reasons.
What is one of your favorite memories, classes, professors, or activities while attending MEC as a student?
My favorite memories at MEC were the random motivational speeches from Dr. Skeete. Those words inspired me to pursue my dreams no matter my background, ﬁnancial situation, or ethnicity.
How has your education at MEC influenced or helped you in your life and career?
My education at MEC played a huge roll in my accomplishments. My professors not only taught me science courses but they also showed me that they came from communities similar to mine.
What are one or two of your proudest professional or personal accomplishments that occurred after graduating from MEC in which your education played a role?
My proudest professional accomplishments are becoming the ﬁrst Dentist in my family and being able to march into a pediatric residency program two blocks away from MEC. I can inspire other students to achieve their goals.
What piece of professional advice would you give your fellow MEC alumni?
You can achieve whatever you put your mind to, the only person who can prevent you from achieving your goals is YOU.
