Kimberly NguyenKimberly Nguyen is a biomedical sciences major, a first-generation college student, and a Regents' Scholar. She was born and raised in Sacramento, California, where she lived for 10 years before her family moved to Houston. Unlike many Vietnamese households, Kimberly grew up with numerous dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, hamsters, and fish, all of which she cared for as family; this inspired her to become a veterinarian. Currently, she has an Alaskan Malamute named Keanu. In her free time, she reads or spends time with her family and friends. While at Texas A&M, she hopes to participate in a study abroad program in Costa Rica.
