Why I Chose TCU:

In my college search, I prioritized finding a university that emphasized academics and provided real world learning experiences. Yet after visiting TCU, my priorities shifted. Though I still prioritized academics, TCU showed me that a university is nothing without a sense of community. TCU’s community was evident the moment that I began a self-guided campus tour my senior year of high school, when a student leader showed me the building for my major of interest and even shared her Instagram with me. Then, the night before our interviews during the Chancellor’s Scholars Weekend, I was amazed when the Chancellor’s Scholars at the event put on a skit to make us laugh and ease our nerves for the interview. It was unlike anything I had seen at any other university. The University’s care for its students, and its sense of community is why I chose TCU.

Plans After Graduation:

After graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish and Hispanic Studies, I plan to attend medical school, so that I can pursue a career as a pediatric psychiatrist. I want to treat patients and conduct translational research involving the mind-body connection, especially relating to stress and pain. By doing so, I hope to innovate and apply stress and pain solutions, so that I can contribute to the improved health and well-being of children everywhere.
