INTRODUCTION

My name is Sarah Wiggins, I am a first-year Health Science major from Silver Spring, Maryland. I love children and medicine so when I graduate I want to go to medical school to become a pediatrician. I have an older brother who is a sophomore at Brown University and I love to travel, listen to music, and try new foods. I was born and lived in NW Washington, D.C. until I was 10 years old then I moved to Silver Spring, Maryland. Spelman College has been my dream since my sophomore year of high school and I am so happy I can finally live it now.
