A little About Myself: I've lived in Bangladesh for 12 years of my life and then I immigrated to the U.S.A. and it's been 4 years since. My career goal is to specialize in Cardiology which means, I'm willing to go through Pre-Medicine and Medical School. I also have an interest in writing and I take up on every opportunity I get to use my writing skills through Journalism. Therefore, I want to minor in Journalism along with a major in Medicine.
