My experience as a bobcat. Well, firstly, my high school mentor was a bobcat primes Jessica, she graduated from here, she came into my high school did a numerous amount of things for me. And just like her care and compassion, it was just like, so it was just a lot for me. It was just like something that of course I get from my family, but getting it from an outsider was just like, Whoa, and then so when she told me she graduated from OHSU, that made me want to come to you. So then coming here, it was just like it was just a network of people who always would just put their hand down. But if you need help, you can come to me. And that's what I like about being a bobcat. There's people who don't look like you who want to see you achieve the things that you want to achieve. And that's what I feel like that's the best part about being a bobcat for me is it doesn't matter where you come from, it doesn't matter who you are. There's always going to be somebody out there to help you here at OU.
