Mentor Screening

Hello, I was born and raised in Bogota, Colombia - a place I keep near and dear to my heart despite living in Miami, Florida. I have had a long journey to becoming a PhD student at the University of Miami. I earned my bachelor's and my master's in Colombia and came to the United States in 2016.The last 3 years I was able to work as a Research Associate at the University of Miami, opening the door for me to begin my studies towards earning a PhD. I am excited to step into a role where I hope I can help other aspiring scientists connect with their passion, or find it all together.
