My name is McKenna Guillozet. I am a 2015 graduate of Lehman Catholic High School, Sidney, Ohio and am proud to be a new member of the Buckeye Community. Measuring just under five feet tall, in high school I was not a person people, per se, looked up to, yet I was someone people sought for guidance and direction. A big reason for this had to do with the positive character and integrity which I strived to exhibit. I undertook leadership positions in two of the school’s clubs, was co-captain of the women’s varsity soccer team, and was also active in other school clubs and activities. Despite a busy schedule I was able to do well academically as well and graduated as the class Salutatorian.
While at Ohio State I have made it my goal to continue to maintain academic excellence. I am a Health Sciences Scholar in the pre-nursing program and next year I hope to be accepted into Ohio State University’s Nursing program working toward the objective of obtaining a Bachelor of Science degree. I have always possessed a passion for helping others along with an interest in medicine. While my plans upon graduation are still in the exploratory stage I am giving strong consideration to furthering my studies in the medical field, possibly studying to become a nurse practitioner, midwife, or nurse anesthetist.
I am excited to learn and experience all that Ohio State University has to offer. Even though I come from a small town and high school, I feel right at home in Columbus due to the welcoming nature of the OSU community. I am confident that as long as I continue to work hard and utilize the opportunities provided by the university I will find the right path so that I may succeed in accomplishing my goals and dreams.
