Valeria felt encouraged to join DEM as a way to surround herself with passionate and caring individuals who genuinely want to make a difference in the world through the healthcare field. DEM has provided her with a safe space in which she feels she can grow both professionally and personally and has brought forth new opportunities to gain experience in the health field and give back to the community. After graduating from UCSD, Valeria plans to attend medical school in hopes of becoming a pediatrician or family medicine physician. In her free time, Valeria loves watching movies, dancing, and spending time with her family and friends.
