Hello! My name is Jason Nguyen, and I am from Portland, Oregon, otherwise known as the city of bikers, hipsters, and coffee enthusiasts. I am none of those things. I am currently a freshman at Santa Clara University pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Biology with a minor in Spanish. After undergrad, I plan on attending medical school to become an oncologist. I have always been fascinated by the study of cancer, but witnessing what it has done to people that I know and love has solidified my resolve to contribute to its treatment and possibly its cure. I am interested in Elevate because I want to be a resource to students like me who may lack resources due to their financial circumstances. Furthermore, I believe that Elevate is a great opportunity for me to improve skills that not only will make me a better tutor but will also benefit me in my future career as a doctor and in all other aspects of my life.
