What motivates you to do/pursue science and/or medicine?

My passion for using quantitative methods to solve problems in the medical field motivates me to pursue science. I developed this passion as an undergraduate, through my coursework in statistics, and explored it in research using big data to answer questions about a patient's health outcome.

What does Black History Month mean to you?

Black History Month, to me, means looking back and drawing inspiration from the leaders who paved the way and made it possible for us to be successful in what we pursue. As we recognize these leaders, it motivates me to become one and create a path for those interested to follow in the STEM field.
