Hi! I’m Meredith Baker and I am from Newark, Ohio. Currently, I am majoring in biology on the pre-med track with a global public health minor. I would like to do undergraduate research for biology as well as a study abroad that ties to the global public health minor. After undergrad, I plan to go to medical school to become a physician or possibly a pediatrician. I have a passion for helping others get the care they need regardless of their financial status or where they live. Everyone deserves a happy and healthy lifestyle.
My goals are to get into the honors program as well as getting more involved with service activities like BuckeyeThon. Another one of my goals is also to get into med school which can be pretty difficult, so we will see how it goes!
I grew up an only child with my two amazing parents Julie and Gary. My best friend, Lilly, was the closest thing to a sister I had and she is my other half. My loving friends and family helped me become the strong, kind, fun-loving buckeye I am today and I wouldn’t be here without them. I will use everything they taught me to build my future here at The Ohio State University.
My top five strengths are Positivity, Harmony, Woo, Futuristic, and Developer. At first I did not connect much with my developer strength but as I read into it I began to understand why it was in my top five. I always seek the potential of others and want to help them grow. Futuristic makes a lot of sense to me because I am such a big planner. I like to have a set plan for each day and I set long and short term goals for myself. Woo represents my social side because I tend to be more extroverted. Harmony shows how I dislike conflict and I try to find an agreement with people. Finally, Positivity is my top strength and this truly shows who I am. I always try to look on the brighter side of each day and I really enjoy life. My strengths represent me very well.
