Priscilla Ramirez

Family Background:

I was born in California but both of my parents are from Mexico. My dad is from Michoacán and my mom is from Puebla. Although I did live in Mexico for about eight months when I was in elementary school, I have grown up in Indiana so I consider this place my home. My family holds traditional Mexican values, but my siblings and I have really embraced our own Mexican American culture. My uncles and aunts like to joke around and say that I speak “Spanglish,” which is the truth.

Major:

Biochemistry

Hobbies/interests:

I don’t have many hobbies. I guess I can say that I love to read for fun when I have the time.  I love reading blogs and poetry. Also, I like to listen to music, and lately I have gone for runs just to clear my mind.

Reasons for choosing GC:

I mainly came to Goshen because of my sister. I came to visit her a couple of times when I was in high school and it felt right. It was also not too close or too far from home.

CITL:

The CITL scholarship benefited me financially and has given me the opportunity to have an education at Goshen.

FUTURE PLANS:

After I graduate from Goshen, I want to take a year off before applying and hopefully attending medical school.  I want to go into pediatrics, maybe be a surgeon or start my own practice.
