Spanos and GonzalezHOMETOWN: Albuquerque, New Mexico

MAJOR: Biological sciences with a minor in mathematics. Plans to graduate in 2006.

BACKGROUND: “I have always had aspirations to go into medicine. It has been a dream of mine. I want to be able to work in the fight against cancer because I have seen what it can do to a family. In high school I was in the National Honor Society, various math competitions and I did volunteer work in a hospital. While at Sacramento State I took part in a summer pre-med prep program at UCSF.”

INFLUENCES: “Here at Sacramento State I’ve had great opportunities to learn about life and gain so many academic skills, which have all contributed to my personal growth. I have also learned to become more comfortable making public presentations.”

HIGHLIGHT: “Having my research published and being a mentor and tutor for incoming freshmen and then seeing them go on and accomplish so many great things here at Sacramento State.”

DESTINATION: “Becoming a medical doctor and conducting research in cancer prevention.”
