My name is Sebastian Ramos. I am a first generation student who came to the United States from Chile at 16 years of age. My major is Biology with a concentration in Pre-Health and a minor in Chemistry. My dream/career goal is to become a primary care physician who works mostly with underrepresented populations. Coming to a new country wasn’t easy, but my passion to be a catalyst and contribute my little grain of rice to the world has taken me to amazing journeys such as working with youth, empowering them to pursue higher education. I love to be involved around my community and that’s why today I say that I am proud to be part of Sigma Lambda Beta Fraternity, the César Chávez Cultural Center, Upward Bound, and the Natural Health Science Student Council. I know that I will gain a lot from this program, and I am more than certain that I will use this opportunity to improve the lives of others as well.
