What prompted you to choose your current course of study? Currently, my major is general studies because I needed to get all my core studies out of the way before I can proceed with further education. After this, I want to study bioengineering because I love science and learning more about it.
What is the best part of attending WC? The best part about WC is the people that work here. My teachers and coaches have helped me a lot along the way, especially since I’m an international student.
What are your post-WC plans? I want to transfer to a four-year school and get a bachelor’s degree in bioengineering. While doing that I want to continue playing basketball for two more years, and from there I will see what my further plans will be.
What are your favorite things to do when you are not at school or studying? I love playing basketball for the Weatherford College Lady Coyotes. I also enjoy photography and playing guitar.
What is your dream job? My dream job is working at a laboratory with a group of people maybe collaborating with different parts of their profession for various projects. I would love to be working with the newest equipment, inventing some complex technology that can be used in medicine or other fields of study.
Who has been your greatest mentor? My greatest mentor here at WC has been my coach Bob McKinley. He is the kindest and most genuine person who has given me advice and helped me throughout this two-year journey.
What is your favorite movie? Not long ago I saw the movie “Annihilation” in the cinema, and it was very interesting. I usually love comedies, horror movies, drama and thrillers.
What has been your favorite course at WC? My favorite course here has been general chemistry because I learned lost of new information and revised what I’ve learned in high school. Chemistry involves some logical thinking both in the classroom and in the lab
How would you describe the campus life experience you’ve had at WC? WC regularly holds various events like the campus cookout, game nights, Halloween and Christmas parties. It is always nice to have something to do, to participate in the events.
How would you describe the quality of education you have received at WC? I believe the quality of education is quite good. It mostly depends on the student himself, though, if he is willing to learn. What is good about WC is the fact that in a smaller college you get more attention from your instructors and can go talk to them personally at almost any time. They will always help and explain anything you are struggling with.
