I'm 19 and a sophomore Biochemistry Molecular Biology student at Hendrix College in Conway, AR. At 14, in the spring of my freshman year of high school, I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. I'm a volunteer counselor at CCFA Camp Oasis (Missouri) and a member of ImproveCareNow's Patient Advisory Council. I've also written about my experiences for the Huffington Post, Gutsy Generation, and ImproveCareNow's LOOP. After undergraduate graduation, I'm hoping to attend medical school and become a pediatric gastroenterologist.
