Humans of UCSF: Dreams Come True

School of Dentistry

“I consider myself a very lucky individual because I have the job of my dreams. What may have started as a superficial interest in my childhood has transformed into an unwavering resolve with which I can help improve people's confidence, restore their function, and make lifelong contributions to their lives. I’m also very honored for the chances I’ve been given at UCSF throughout the past six and a half years. I’ve been able to meet and learn from a very diverse group of amazing people from different cultures and beliefs. I owe my future to this amazing institution and many of the dedicated faculty and staff that I have encountered throughout my experience here. As I am about to graduate from UCSF after seven years, I’ll make sure I would represent the institution to its highest caliber of excellence and hope to be able to give back in the future.”
