Originally from Khartoum, Sudan, Sara Mohamedzein has lived in West Hartford, CT since the sixth grade. As a student at William H. Hall High School she was a member of the Medical Club and took advantage of the Mini Medical and Dental Program at UConn Health. She feels that both activities gave her an opportunity to learn about a variety of professions and concentrations within health care. Sara will be a biomedical engineering, or perhaps a chemical engineering major, at UConn. She was aided in the college application process by the fact that she was chosen as a College Prep Scholar and Questbridge Scholar, which gave her many resources and provided her with a community of gifted scholars.
