I wanted to become a BEST Peer Mentor... To help! I became a peer mentor to help other under grads with areas there unsure of, like what classes to take, how to become more involved on campus, what you can do with a Biology degree, etc. One of the best ways, at least for me, was talking with upperclassmen and talking about their experiences and advice.
Campus Involvement I have been an active member pre-dental club and pre-med club, St. Jude's Club, St. Thomas Aquinas, and I am the vice-president of YAF, Young American for Freedom. I also work at Ames Orthodontics part-time and I am also a lab TA for BIOL 313.
Students can ask me about... resumes, shadowing, health/dentistry professions, letters asking to shadow/thank you for letting me shadow, pre-dental club, dentistry, logging clinic hours, prepping for post grad exams, nutrition, lifting
