Biography

¡Bienvenidos! My name is Guadalupe Andrea Solis, and I come from Denver, Colorado. I am majoring in Biology with an emphasis in pre-health and biomedical science, though I also have a special kind of love for cellular biology (I love research). I am minoring in chemistry and hope to graduate in May of 2018. Aside from being a McNair Scholar, I am also a proud member of the Stryker Institute for Leadership Development, a program that focuses on helping promising women develop their leadership skills to make the world a better place. I work as a caregiver among the elderly on my weekends off, and I hope to make a difference in low-income, underrepresented, at-risk communities in the future as a medical professional. I come from a family of hardworking Mexican immigrants, and I have witnessed firsthand what communities not as privileged as ours look like. I am devoted to making the best of the opportunities that have been presented to me in this life.
