    At Boston University, my first independent research project’s goal was to deliver fluorescent-protein loaded nanoparticles to the epidermis of mice and induce immunological responses. While evaluating nanoparticles as drug carriers, I began to think of the vast possibilities that could be achieved through biomedical research. Upon college graduation, I joined Dr. Darrell Irvine’s group of immunobioengineers as a research technician at MIT. I had the exceptional opportunity to work on projects aimed at enhancing HIV and cancer vaccine delivery. I worked on mice studies, evaluating immune responses to drug carriers. For the past two year I have been engaged in rigorous academic and laboratory skills training towards my PhD in Biomedical engineering. At Texas A&M, I continue my work in the biomedical engineering field. My project aims to develop a method to continuously sense blood analytes, such as glucose, using carrier red blood cells as biosensors. Bioengineered systems have the potential to improve global health and this potential motivates my work on cutting-edge research. I believe I earned the respect of my professors, peers, and members of the community through integrity, creativity, and tireless effort to succeed. I have had the opportunity to work with people of all ages, backgrounds, and walks of life. From this, I have learned the invaluable lessons of being flexible, supportive, genuine, and dedicated to teamwork. I am confident that upon further investigation that you will find that I have left an impression upon those that I have worked for, worked with, and those who have guide me through this journey. My journey although up to this point has been filled with obstacles and infrequently traveled roads, taught me invaluable lessons about how perseverance and a desire for excellence can help deal with adversity. I would welcome the opportunity to further develop my skills, accomplish my goals, and fuel my passion for a career in biomedical research.  less
