Hi! My name is Chiemezie Onwuka. I’m a senior student at American University graduating with a Biology degree in May 2018. I grew up most of my life in New Jersey and I live in a town near Atlantic City called Linwood. I was actually born in Lagos, Nigeria but my family moved here just a year after I was born.  I’m a huge fan of soccer and will watch most other sports, but I’ll actively be on at least one soccer team during a season. I maintain a home garden of morning glories, marigolds, and more and I also landscape around the DC area. My career plan is to attend medical school in Fall 2020 with a long term focus on orthopedic medicine or surgery. I recently started a volunteer service as a volunteer EMT in Bethesda, MD at the Glen Echo Fire Department and plan to work as a physiotherapy aide when I graduate next year.
