My dream for the future is to be a scientific illustrator. To achieve this, I will combine my artistic talent with my interest in science and major in visual arts and human biology as an undergraduate and study art as applied to medicine in graduate school. My goal is to design figures and informational learning tools used in journals, textbooks, presentations, and animations that will bridge gaps in medical and healthcare communication. My educational training will prepare me for a career that involves animation, 3D modeling, and graphic design in collaboration with biomedical professionals and researchers. I intend to create renditions that teach, explain, and depict biomedical concepts so that difficult concepts are easier to understand. I dream of combating inequity in healthcare that has disproportionately affected African Americans by helping people understand concepts so that their medical knowledge is increased and they are able to make well-informed healthcare decisions. I will work to alleviate the warranted distrust of the healthcare system by educating people on how the human body functions, and how treatments such as vaccines work. I also want to cultivate more diversity in scientific illustration because we rarely see African Americans in this unique field. I dream to make scientific illustration more known to people of color and make an effort to include more underrepresented people in the field. One way I will do this is by being a role model who encourages the development of artistic talent and an interest in science in youth of color. Furthermore, I will address the problem in scientific illustration in which the white male body is the standard in medical images. To promote diversity in scientific illustration I will increase representation of diverse bodies in illustrations so that the richness of our society is reflected.

I was blessed to gain admission into the University of South Carolina’s MSN-FNP program for Fall 2021. My desire to work in dermatology, developed from a passion to help others when it comes to physical insecurities. I personally struggled for years with incessant cystic acne. This physical condition can leave the person feeling emotionally debilitated. Skin conditions effect not only physical health but mental and emotional health. I want to work in this field to help others find answers and help them to gain confidence through treatments that are effective. My short-term goal is to attain my MSN degree. Shortly after, I hope to sit for the boards in which I will become a licensed nurse practitioner. I would like to shadow a NP working in a dermatology clinic. I want to gain all the knowledge I can. My goal is to open up my own dermatology office in south Florida. I have always had an eye for symmetry. I hope to be able to become the top in my field with non-surgical facial contouring procedures. I want to make others feel and look their best. I will strive to provide quality care in a welcoming environment.
