Future goals: To go into medical school. “I’m not sure what kind of doctor I want to be yet, but I know I want to be a doctor. I volunteered in the ER at Northside, and it’s not a trauma care, so people aren’t coming in with car accidents, but it’s people with heart attacks and I just saw what they do for them there and knew that’s what I want to do.”
