Our Future Leaders

Exercise science Master’s degree in Biotechnology at John Hopkins University, First year medical student at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School

For many students from more advantage background and establish lineages, entering college may seem trivial and the expected thing to do. However, for many children of immigrants, entering college is a privilege. For my family, this meant hope and for myself this meant an opportunity of a lifetime. Ever since that acceptance letter to SEBS EOF in 2015, I have continued to push forward, endurance be great, daring to be a challenge. Despite fallen countless times, I have kept moving forward keeping my family, my “why” with me, always.

SEBS EOF was like my family away from my family, in that I found a lot of my lifelong friends there and had more personal relationships with the advisers they provided a strong academic support which helped me succeed in my classes, along with teaching me what I needed to do to apply to medical school. Thank you SEBS EOF!

SEBS EOF has helped me tremendously throughout my four years at Rutgers. SEBS EOF is like a family to me and I’ve grown extremely close to all of the advisors and Dean. I would not be where I am if it wasn't for their trust, love, and support! Thank you!”
