Name and describe a memorable place you’ve been.

I’ve been to the Taj Mahal and it’s such a beautiful place to see.  It’s incredible to see something that was built almost 400 years ago.

What is your proudest accomplishment?

My dream is to become a physician.  I had a really difficult time conquering the MCAT.  I did not do well the first time I took it.  I didn’t let that dishearten me too much, and I decided to study for it one more time and I ended up doing so much better.  It was really rewarding to see the hard work you put in for something eventually pay off.
