"Hello, my name is Emiliano Gonzales-Serrano, and I am a pre-med student at CU Boulder. I plan to study integrative physiology during my time at the university.

Currently, I am a certified CNA and I plan to be a physician of family medicine serving underrepresented populations. I love to travel, and I will one day volunteer my time with doctors without borders."
