Serenity Nicole Azure

Grade/School:
Junior at Oñate High School

Favorite Class:
“My favorite subject is health occupations. It helps prepare you for the medical field, so upon graduation I’ll have a better understanding of the field.”

Reasons to Love OHS:
“What I like best about my school is they have so much to offer students. They don’t limit the amount of attention or help a student may need. They do not discourage a student if they learn differently from others. Teachers are always kind and willing to help.”

Goals & Dreams:
“After high school, I plan on going to college to become a cardiothoracic surgeon. If I could choose any college, I would love to study at the University of New Mexico. Medical school is hard work, with a lot of time and dedication. After obtaining my degree, I plan on doing a little sightseeing around the world as a reward for my hard work. I would eventually like to start a family of my own, once I have established my career.”

Surprising Fact:
“As a child, I had a dream of growing up and being a pop star like Hannah Montana. Once I saw how cool and interesting it is to be a surgeon, I chose to put the microphone down to pick up a scalpel.”
