My name is Maribel Tovar and I am a Junior at the University of San Diego. Aside from being on the pre-med track, I am majoring in Spanish and minoring in Chemistry and Biology. Initially coming from Sacramento, California the distance from home seemed far. However, through joining SOAR (Student Outreach and Recruitment), the Honors Program, being a tour guide, and taking up local internships and volunteer opportunities, I began to think about home less and less. Over the last three years USD has given me several opportunities I will never forget and I will be forever thankful to them bringing me one step closer to becoming a physician.
