Summary

I am a highly-motivated pre-dental student with a desire to gain first-hand knowledge and experience in the dental field. From being a collegiate athlete, I have learned how to work effectively under pressure and how to adapt and learn in new environments and challenges. Additionally, I have a strong desire to succeed and to constantly learn. This has lead to a strong work ethic, mastering new skills rapidly, and great time management skills. After one-hundred hours of shadowing at a variety of dental offices, I still want more exposure and experience in the dental field. Also, with over one-hundred hours of community service, I have learned that I truly enjoy assisting people and improving their lives. Ultimately I wish to attend dental school to incorporate my passions of science, learning, art, and community service.
