My name is Christopher and I am a pre-med student at UCLA. I came to the U.S. on a tourist
visa when I was 12 years old. As the child of a politician who strived to protect the rights
of farmers all over my home state, I was able to interact with people from all economic backgrounds.
Not only did I witness a very unfair division of wealth, but also the poor health care that a big percentage of
my fellow citizens received. When I arrived here, I realized that the conditions were not much better.
With this in mind, my goal is to one day be a successful doctor with a strong background in public
service and social justice that I will use to fight for a fair health care reform in the U.S. and if God permit,
Mexico as well.
