Career Objective

I seek to pursue a career in academics as I find a sense of fulfillment in imparting knowledge that I have acquired to others as well as the ability to propose solutions to the challenges that face the profession. The first in my family to aim beyond the benchmark. 

My aim to be an admired leader and academic within the Oral Health Sciences field that aspiring young dentists of tomorrow can rely on and obtain the necessary support to excel at their studies and future profession.
