I plan to major in biology and minor in computer science at UNC. I’ve always had a fascination for the inner mechanics of the human body, as well as the inner workings of electronics, so my major and minor are both two things I really look forward to learning more about at Carolina.
So far I have received an academic scholarship for UNC worth $3,000 for up to four years, a financial aid grant worth $11,137 for my first upcoming year, and I’ve been saving up money by working part-time at Food Lion for over half a year now.
Also, since I was fortunate enough to be accepted into and attend Rockingham Early College High School, I will be able to enter college at Carolina starting as a junior. After earning my bachelor’s degree from UNC, I plan to pursue my passion for biology in the medical field.
As of now, I hope to apply to the UNC School of Medicine where I will earn my doctorate degree and become a general practitioner. I will likely work in Greensboro or Raleigh if I do manage to become a doctor. However, if this doesn’t happen, I likely see myself becoming some sort of biotech scientist or perhaps even a computer programmer.
My future plans really stem from what I will enjoy studying most at Carolina, which is yet to be seen. Eden is somewhat of a small town as well so I really haven’t had the chance to experience much yet, although I do love the town and will forever appreciate the place I was raised in. I would love to come back to this town when I get older, too, just because I know how great the community is here and how some things never change in it.
