Michelle, a biology pre-med student from Plano, TX, chose to attend Texas A&M University-Commerce because of acceptance into the Regents Scholars Program.
An active member of the campus community, Michelle traveled to Costa Rica with the Regents Scholars last May, joined the Student Government Association, the Student Healthcare Outreach Society and participated in the Miss Black and Gold Scholarship Pageant.
“A&M-Commerce has made me more open-minded,” Michelle said. “The Regents Scholars Program has allowed me to see just how many opportunities were lingering before me.”
Michelle’s favorite class at A&M-Commerce has been anthropology, which taught her about different world cultures, and showed her life from different points-of-views. The class made Michelle aware of the new social norms and customs that may arise with any future endeavor she may pursue.
After graduation, Michelle plans to attend medical school in hopes of becoming a dermatologist, and eventually opening up her own practice.
