Mary Hoong is a senior at the University of Colorado Denver and is currently majoring in Psychology and minoring in Biology and Philosophy. She grew up taking care of her three little sisters and that maternal figure she developed has caused her to want to take care of others for the rest of her life. The Undergraduate Pre-Health Program (UPP) was an amazing opportunity that she took because it is a program in which participants are given resources and motivation to reach their goals. Along with being part of UPP, Mary is also taking difficult classes, being part of multiple school organizations, volunteering, and consistently looking for opportunities that will make her the best candidate for medical school that she can be. She is an optimistic, resilient and devoted student that puts 110% effort in everything that she does.
