  • I am currently a Junior at John Carroll University and am majoring in Cell and Molecular Biology with a minor in Psychology. I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease when I was 8 years old and was sick with it three years before that. I have been incredibly lucky with my disease because it has never fully flared since my diagnosis. It has been caught only a few times before a full flare up. Even though I have been lucky, I still realize how difficult and unpredictable the disease can be. I have done research on a new diagnostic method for Crohn's when I was a Junior in high school and would love to continue research during medical school. Having Crohn's has allowed me to appreciate the health I have and not take it for granted. I try my best to go to the gym every day and eat healthy. Having Crohn's disease has only fueled my fascination of the human body and I hope to contribute to the research that is being done on Crohn's and Colitis. Hopefully someday we will have a cure.
