Hi! My name is Gloria Flores, and I am the daughter of two amazing and hardworking Mexican immigrants. I am an undergraduate at the University of South Florida majoring in Health Sciences with a minor in Infection Control. My aspiration is to one day become an epidemiologist and utilize my skills and knowledge to help minorities receive the health care they need and deserve. When I’m not studying or in class, I love to spend time with my family and friends, go on hikes, and play soccer.
