Colts Neck High School
International Business and Management
Career plans: My professional aspirations are to become a practicing physician, manage a practice,
and provide the upmost care to patients.
Most impactful experience: One of the most impactful experiences I have had at UofSC is travelling abroad to
South Africa right before the pandemic. It was an unbelievable opportunity, and I
will never forget the friends that I made and the extraordinary places that I went.
Best part of the Top Scholars program: I enjoy the tightknit community created by the students and faculty. There are so
many opportunities and events offered throughout the year, and it truly is an enriching
experience to have the ability to connect with so many wonderful people.
UofSC Story: I discovered an opportunity to become involved in global health research focusing
on South Africa and jumped at the chance to travel there through a course at UofSC.
With a cross-cultural focus in my business studies and an open mind, I paid attention
to the ways I could learn from the people and experience. In a two-room house, surrounded
by cornfields, I met one woman who was raising her eight children alone and had started
her own business selling crafts. I realized she was a heroine to her family, gracing
the world with strength, resiliency and humility. I want to move forward with my life
embodying those same qualities.
