I Found My Niche at Marymount University
Student Name: Monica Barrera
School: Marymount University
“Hello everyone, my name is Monica Barrera and I recently graduated from Marymount University with a bachelor’s in Biochemistry and Pre-Med minor. As a first-generation Latina, the journey was not easy, but with the support of my family and the Marymount community, I was able to overcome many obstacles and finish strong!
I am excited to start the next chapter in life at Georgetown University’s Biochemistry and Molecular Biology MS program to pursue a career in forensics and later enter the medical field. I’m super excited for this opportunity and I look forward to meeting my future Hoya family. Congrats, class of 2021!” –@monica_0741
