Advice for applicants: Celebrate the small victories! Your journey as a pre-health student will be full of ups and downs, but at the end of the day, always be proud of how far you have come. 
 
How HPAO helped: HPAO has helped me along my pre-health journey since freshman year. Through interaction with peer mentors and staff, I was able to navigate my path and make the most of my time as an undergraduate. I decided to apply to become a peer mentor, and this experience helped me to grow my leadership skills along with knowledge of the different health professions. Building relationships with other SDSU students and staff has been such a rewarding experience! Serving as a Student Assistant now, I can confidently say that my involvement in HPAO has become one of the most important experiences pertaining to my growth. For those who are unsure about how to get involved with the office, don’t hesitate to reach out! You will not regret it.
