My go to karaoke song is Dancing Queen by ABBA!
My favorite part about TPS is the people! I love having a community of such motivated people to look to for support and advice. I also really enjoy the dental-related volunteer opportunities that TPS provides.
I am also a member of Texas Chi Omega and Global Medical Training. In addition, I took part of the IES Study Abroad Program this past summer!
Get involved! Volunteer, shadow, and network as much as you can, and do not be afraid to reach out for help or advice when you need it!

Say no more memes.
TPS can be very enjoyable and fun if you invest in it and are willing to meet the numerous members in it. It is also very informative and helpful in our progress of becoming a dentist though.
I am apart of Texas Healthy Habits, which is a great organization to be in. I also volunteer in Dallas at various elementary schools.
Work hard in school and remember what is on the line but don’t overdo it and overstress where it takes over your life like I did. Chillllll.

I would start one where people raise animals and work the land and their favorite color is maroon… oh wait they already exist.
I have always been interested in human wellness and what I can do to help others. I also love the artistry and mechanical nature involved in dentistry.
I volunteer at the William’s School in Austin. The school focuses on improving the lives of children on the Autism Spectrum. I absolutely love interacting with the kids and helping them learn to express themselves.
I love being outdoors and on the water. I scuba dive, kayak, sail, and swim in my free time. I also love to travel, read, and paint.

As much as some people hate it, I actually enjoy pineapple on my pizza.
Everyone in TPS is one big family with a similar goal of getting into dental school.
I would like to own a supercar at some point in my life.
It is an avocado... thanks!

If you do not like pineapple on pizza, you are wrong and we can not be friends.
I had really bad teeth growing up, and it made me anxious and self-conscious about my smile. My dentists and orthodontists fixed a lot of problems with my teeth and made a world of difference in my life. I want to help people in the same way they did for me.
Headphones. Who knew someone could be both boring and weird at the same time?
Speaking from personal experience, everything can seem both intimidating and overwhelming at first. If you set tangible goals and fill out a timeline of what you want accomplished during each year, everything will look so much simpler and easier. And stick with TPS! As a member and fellow pre-dent, TPS is your greatest resource and will keep you on the right track.

Fergalicious by Fergie. And yes, I sing the entire rap (not well though).
When I was 13, I fell off of a Segway and broke my two front teeth. Two root canals, two crowns, and countless dentist visits later, I knew that dentistry was the perfect career for me.'
Study hard but never forget to have fun!!
I volunteer with Austin Partners in Education where I get to teach 8th graders math. This has been the most rewarding experience of my college career and it’s an opportunity I got through TPS!
Get it off!!
I love being able to have an impact on our community! And everytime I walk into a TPS meeting or social event I make new friends.
I really really REALLY wish I could juggle, I’ll get there eventually. Does juggling count as a resume booster?
I am the freshman representative in the Biomedical Engineering undergraduate advisory board.
