Favorite Thing about TUSDM/Why you chose Tufts: I chose TUSDM because it is an institution that truly cares about diversity within the student body. Administration and staff at TUSDM care about your story and your struggle. While interviewing at other dental schools it many times feels as if you’re going on a job interview; I felt as if other schools weren’t interested in me as a human being. In contrast, while interviewing at TUSDM there was an overwhelming feeling of comfort. They wanted to know me, the person, and it was refreshing to be in a place that makes you feel like you matter. This institution allows you to believe in yourself and your voice. They make it effortless to voice your opinions, dreams, and goals. I feel pride to have chosen an institution that embodies inclusivity and diversity. They are invested in our success and our growth as dental professionals and human beings.

Fun Fact About yourself/Things involved in outside of School: I am involved in advocating for animal rescues. I have rescue dogs, some of which have been rescued from significant abuse and neglect. I have fostered dogs that have needed temporary homes. Even with loan money I have donated for surgeries and medical care of abused animals. I feel strongly about being a voice and a helping hand for injustices of all kinds.
