This past year at Texas A&M has been nothing short of how great I expected it to be. Every aspect of the school fits me like a glove. The people, the spirit, the community, and the challenge all come together in A&M to make a perfect road to the future for any young Aggie. As some of you may already know, I declared my major as Biomedical Science. This is basically A&M's major for almost all health professions.

Being a Bio-Med major has been a challenge, especially facing all those "weed out" courses that really do justice to their name. But thankfully I never fell victim to any of them. I also got involved in many extracurricular activities. Some of these include, Biomedical Science Association (BSA), Pre-Medical Society, Brothers Under Christ, Aggie Wranglers, and a service fraternity by the name of Alpha Phi Omega (APO). Each one of these organizations has really helped me to understand college life a little bit better.

Although I have learned a lot from courses like Biology and Chemistry, I have learned a lot more outside of the classroom. After leaving home I wasn't really sure at all how things would work living on my own. I didn't know how to cook, clean, or even wash my own clothes. College has taught me more than that though. It has taught me about people, responsibility, and most of all achievements. Even though sometimes I reminisce on high school and wish I could go back some days, I know that what I am doing now makes all the difference in the future.

Thank You,
