Bio

I’ve been committed to the health of future generations through environmental efforts, volunteer work, and education of the youth. I strongly believe that one’s health stems from the environment, for nature provides the source of life. Nevertheless, education remains equally important as it holds the solutions to various issues. I’m infinitely proud that my work has influenced a fourth grader to become a teacher, while a fifth grader was inspired to become an environmental scientist. Despite my environmental and educational efforts, I aspire to become a physician. Ethnic discrepancies remain a large issue in medicine, especially within the Pacific Islands. The physician shortage throughout the islands makes accessible and affordable healthcare that is personalized for each patient exponentially more difficult. As a physician, who continues to regularly volunteer at local organizations, I intend on fulfilling my aspirations to serve my community.
