"During high school, I started to look for possibilities in the healthcare system. I discovered the Post Bachelor program for Medical Technology at the University of Puerto Rico. I liked the curriculum; it was a short but intense program that would allow me to have a professional career in a few years. It was also very competitive to get into the program. In order to meet the prerequisite courses necessary to apply, I worked towards a degree in Biology. "
