What is your plan for the future? To major in psychology with a pre-med focus and then attend medical school.
What/who has been the biggest influence on your plan for the future? My friends Dad Dr. Jay Moodley has definitely had the biggest influence on me. He was the first person to ever get me to consider the medical field and pushed me to want to become a doctor!
What is one of the best things about being a student at Harding High School? One of the best things about being a student at Harding is all of the academic opportunities I have been presented with. For example, the ccp program has been a great way to get a head start on taking college classes.
How is GEAR UP helping you with your plan for the future? Gear up has helped me in so many ways! Each advisor has a different academic background and they have all been so helpful in answering any questions about certain schools and their college experiences in general. The program has also helped me such much financially by providing me with ACT fee waivers, college application fee waivers, college visits, and much more!
