Currently attending University of Notre Dame

Briefly, describe your career path
I want to be either a surgeon or head of a medical company. But either way, Steve Jobs says it best: "I want to put a ding in the universe." I want to do something great in the healthcare so that the world will be a better place because I lived.
What are you passionate about in your work/school?
I’m passionate about my dreams and life purpose. They are my life and fuel.
Where is your career headed?
In the medical sector
How has your Concept Schools experience helped shape your success?
One thing that interests everyone both young and old is the first step a kid takes. After that the next steps don't receive much recognition. My experience at Horizon has taught me some basic success lessons which I believe will take me a long way.
How are you a game changer? Or, how are you making a positive impact in your community?
I'm a game changer in many ways. I want to be another positive influence in the world and motivate others with my story.
What is the most amazing or interesting thing that’s happened to you since graduating?
Just a few months ago I finished high school and I could chill. Right now, I'm in college and everything is double the work I had at high school. One thing I find interesting about this is that time flies and our responsibilities keep increasing. I shouldn't say I will have more time. I must take all my risks and chances now because as I move, I become more occupied.
Your favorite Concept Schools memory?
My favorite memory was when I was on stage giving my speech at graduation. It was really amazing.
How do you support and participate in the Concept Alumni?
I plan to support and help in every way I can. I will avail myself during the college fair and other opportunities so that I can talk to people and try to change lives. I'm in the college of my dreams partly because of Concept schools. It's now time to give back.
