Mhret, from Charlotte, N.C., is a biochemistry major involved in Loyola’s Pre-Health Programs. Her favorite part about her academic program is “the wide array of opportunities I had to explore my interests. The labs and internships I participated in expanded my understanding of biochemistry—and the world.” Loyola’s liberal arts education has also inspired the discovery of new interests, such as Mhret’s passion for her minors in Forensic Studies and biomedical physics. The faculty at Loyola are an amazing and compassionate support system for her: “Their contributions are an integral part of my success in my courses.” On campus, Mhret is the social media officer for the Society of Underrepresented Pre-Health Students and the treasurer and a mentor in the ALANA Mentoring Program. She is also the treasurer and event coordinator for the African Student Association and a lab assistant in the department of chemistry and biochemistry. She volunteers as a tutor at the Mother Seton Academy and is an Elijah Cummings Youth Project Fellowship Mentor. Mhret says her experience with community service coupled with her classes and leadership experiences on campus “have made me well prepared for my future.” After she graduates, she will be working at Mercy Medical Center as a clinical research coordinator before she begins physician assistant school.

The Loyola community is highly supportive. Professors and other students truly care about your academic and personal growth—and I believe this has been a crucial part of my undergraduate success.
