Major/Intended Major: Biology
I chose ECU because it felt like home to me. While visiting many other colleges, I felt like a number but at ECU I felt I genuinely mattered. They bombarded me with letters and phone calls to see how I was and really made me feel special.
My scholarship has allowed me relax about pursuing a college education. Money was playing a huge factor in making my college decision but when I received the scholarship, all worries went out the window. I am now very excited to start my college career and anxious to see where my life goes.
I aspire to become a Medical Doctor. I have wanted to be a doctor from the time I was a boy, and ECU has given me a very unique and special opportunity to become one. On top of the EC Scholars award, I am an Early Assurance recipient. This guarantees me a spot in the Brody School of Medicine. I am still undecided on what specialty I plan to pursue.
