TOP 3 LIFE GOALS and HOW WILL YOU ACHIEVE THEM:  
My top three goals are to get into medical school, pass (which is in a league of it's own) and use my knowledge of medicine and my personal experience with cancer to help young adults in underrepresented communities, like my own home town.  

I plan on doing this by continuing to volunteer in underprivileged neighborhoods, mentor young adults and cancer patients, and studying hard to get into any school that will accept me.

 

BIGGEST TAKE-AWAY(S) FROM YOUR CANCER EXPERIENCE:  
Life is too short to worry and stress.  Be happy, live life, help others less fortunate than you, and above all love.  Love will take you anywhere you want to go.
