Major: Athletic Training
Mentor: Dr. F. Richard Ferraro
Expected Graduation Date: May 2014
Organizations: Student Ambassadors
Currently I am a senior and I'm in the Athletic Training Program. I am originally from Philadelphia, PA but I grew up in Bloomington Minnesota. I am a first generation American. My family is from the small west African country of Liberia near the Atlantic coast. I chose to go into athletic training because of my passion for medicine and sports. Besides focusing on academics here at UND I have other hobbies and interests that I enjoy engaging in. I like to cook travel read workout and I enjoy watching hockey and football. After completing my degree at UND I am hoping to obtain a master's degree in an area connected to healthcare. For my doctoral I would like to either go into rehabilitative sciences or sports psychology.
My experience with the McNair Program has been very positive and eye opening. The McNair program has helped me o better understand the graduate process and all of the graduate options that I have. The program has also opened my eyes to the doctoral track and the process that is involved something that I never really thought about. The McNair program has encouraged me to dream big especially academically. I am really glad and grateful to be in the program.
