Get to know Narcy
I am passionate about...understanding preventative medicine as a function of early action on lifestyle adjustments. For my hobbies, I love training jiu-jitsu and kickboxing.
I am interested in (affiliated student organizations/groups on campus)...undergraduate neuroscience research, helping to host academic competitions (BrainBee and Science Olympiad), and environmental sustainability.
I chose UAB because...Growing up in Birmingham, I experienced a terrific childhood filled with amazing friends, great education, financial stability, and every opportunity to grow as a human. Utilizing my scholarship and potential medical opportunities at UAB, I hope to remain in Birmingham somewhat longer to better the community that has given me so much. Moreover, UAB’s Honors programs, engaging professors, research opportunities, and campus organizations were all significant factors in deciding to attend the institution. This university is always expanding and renovating, furthering the quality of education and opportunities available to students.
Best class you have taken at UAB?(Honors) Principles of Microeconomics w/ Dr. Robinson
Biggest college/adult related fear you have overcome at UAB?As is the case with many people, I feared having to push past my comfort zone to make whole new friend circles. I am very fortunate in that my childhood friends continue to be my best friends to this day, but attending different universities means we cannot see each other as often. A few close friends came to UAB with me, so it was challenging to enter new friend groups apart from them. In the first couple weeks and eventually months of freshman year, connecting with friends of other friends and joining new organizations organically provided me with new social circles.
