We know how much information is out there to help you navigate your premed years. Thanks to the internet, the information is unlimited but not always accurate. Also, what works for one premed won't work for another. We all are extremely different and require different advice and guidance.

I’m an MS2 at UT-Health San Antonio, and I’m a VERY non-traditional student. I grew up in Memphis, TN and was the only one of four siblings to complete 10th grade. In high school, I had NO intention of going to college until the end of tenth grade when I found out about the Military Service Academies. Finally having a goal in mind, I got my act together and was accepted to West Point where I majored in psychology and boxed for four years.
Within 18 months of graduating, I got married, fathered a child, and was on a plane to Afghanistan as a combat engineer platoon leader leading missions to find and detonate IEDs. My Army career continued successfully for eight years, and I completed a master’s degree in engineering management and coursework in mental health counseling before finding my passion to pursue medicine.
I know what it is like to come from a background of low expectations and to know deep down that I can and should do more. I have learned how to stop placing limits on myself based on my own perceptions or influences around me. I know how scary it can seem to abandon a stable path of success to pursue a dream while others depend on you. And over the past two years in medical school, I have earned the gratification of confirming that every risk taken and all the work put in was fully worth it; medicine is equally challenging and rewarding, and I could not be happier with my decision.
