Get to know Tyrek

I am passionate about...Travel, tennis, and good eats.
I am interested in (affiliated student organizations/groups on campus)...Volunteering with SNA and leadership in the SON.
I chose UAB because...Of its unmatched diversity across the board and it happens to be a top 10 amazing nursing school in the U.S.!
Favorite UAB tradition?Blazer Splash in the fall! Working as a student ambassador for the Alumni Society was so well worth it for this event, as so many of my friends have said this (along with myself) was one of the most fun moments they had here! Having a huge water balloon fight with students, faculty, and Blaze is a memory I’ll have with me for a long time.
Favorite thing to do in Birmingham?Go to vintage shops and markets, especially at Mom’s!
