"I am super excited to be going to such a presutigious university. I am extremely grateful to the Lions Club for helping me reach my dreams. Much like the Lion's Club motto "we serve", I also want to serve those around me that lack adequate health care and are victims of violence. I want to pursue biology in society with a minor in Inequality studies at Cornell on a pre med path. I eventually want to become a pediatric surgeon and help kids who lack access to basic needs and health care, both here and abroad." -Krinal Thakkar
