Preventative Health For Disadvantaged Communities
With a goal to end health disparities, and a focus in health communication; I have learned that many preventable health issues fail to be prevented due to a lack of health literacy. My goal as a Preventative Care doctor is to use communication to reduce health discrepancies and increase equal access to the resources necessary for health prevention.

I want to play a role in designing a better world.
Engineering has a major impact on the world. Everything from a bridge, to a car, to a soda can has gone through an engineering process. I want to be able to take part in creating something that will have an effect that's bigger than I am. I also want to encourage other women that we can participate in STEM careers just as much as men can.

i want to be a voice for the minorities
Growing up in a Puerto Rican and Jamaican family, I've been around several minorities my whole life. I was taught that me and my opinions matter. In the future, I want to be a voice for those that grew up being taught the opposite. I'm on my way to helping others believe that it is okay for them to use their voices.
