Year at UW: Third

View my Honors portfolio »

About me: Hey! I'm Van and I'm a third year pre-dental student. I came from a tiny tiny high school so coming to UW was a huge change and honors really helped me with the transition. While taking all the typical weed out intro science classes freshman year I decided to do something to keep myself from feeling lost among the hundreds of students and joined clubs! I now research at the Center for Pediatric Dentistry and could not be more happy about my career path. Besides the academic stuff I am in a sorority, I go out social dancing for fun and I love watching Parks and Recreation :) I'm happy to share what I have learned so if you have any questions about adjusting to college or trying to find the right major please don't hesitate to contact me!
