Jaydel Hernandez is a biology major but is thinking about adding a minor or double major in a politics-related field to help in her pursuit of a career as a doctor who practices abroad. Originally from Guatemala, she grew up watching her father give back to their community in that country, and they are working on plans to open an orphanage there. Jaydel has attended a program at Johns Hopkins University that allowed her to experience inserting an IV and suturing. She has also completed a course at Greenwich Hospital where she learned about the responsibilities of each medical department. Additionally she completed an internship program at a center for mentally disabled patients. Jaydel is from Greenwich, CT and a graduate of Greenwich High School.
