In their biomedical engineering program.

I decided to enroll in their fast track program, in their undergrad and master's degree program.

So, when you do that it will take about three years to finish after you transfer from community college.

After graduating from UTD with my master's in biomedical engineering, i want to go to medical school and get in the M.D. Ph.d. program.

So, after I finish that I want to be a research doctor and work in prosthetic development and gene therapy.

I've always said that my biggest accomplishment in life will be not giving up.

It will not be the day i graduate, the day i become a doctor, it will not be any of that,

It will be not giving up ... Because I've had hundreds of opportunities to just give up.

I don't want to settle, I don't want to just say one day, "When I was young, I had this dream and that's all it was."
