"I chose to study radiology because I went through a lot of scans at a young age and know how scary or uncomfortable it can be." "I want to be able to comfort people who are in that situation, and let them know that I am there for them and am doing everything I can to help them." "The advisers in the department are amazing, and as students, we work together to do well in classes and be the best we can be. We all like to help each other out."
