A first-generation high school graduate, college graduate, and now medical student, Jessica certainly has an inspiring story! Born to Mexican immigrants, she serves as a role model not only to her family members but to people in her community. She’s a good friend and classmate of mine who recently started Inspire Hope, a YouTube channel targeting high school and college students interested in the premed track. I’m very excited to share her story on my blog and hope you will be as inspired as I am!
A few key points from the interview:
- It wasn’t until her senior year of high school that she decided to pursue medicine
- She went through the medical school application cycle twice
- The MCAT was a challenge for her, but after a couple of retakes, she beat it
- She created her YouTube channel to inspire high school students
