Meet our TrailBlazer of the Week! Hey ya’ll! My name is Khushee, and I am a junior majoring in Medical Industrial Distribution on the Pre-Physician Assistant Studies Track. I am currently involved with the Pre-PA Association, Business Student Leaders, and Greek Life! In my time here as a Blazer, I have loved gaining experience from the amazing opportunities that were provided to me. I chose UAB because of my unique major. It allows me to customize my academic experience to best fit my life and career goals. My advisors have worked with me to fit in my major, pre-health, and honors college requirements - all in 4 years, so I can graduate on time. My favorite thing about UAB and Birmingham is the food scene! I love anything related to bowls—açaí bowls, poké bowls, taco bowls, etc. so if you ever need a food recommendations, I got you!

Meet our TrailBlazer of the Week! Hi Everyone! 👋🏻😊 My name is Taylor England, and I am a current sophomore psychology major here at UAB. I am a TrailBlazer, involved in greek life, a part of the psychology honors program, work on campus, and participate in undergraduate research. I chose UAB because I wanted to find a school where I could get involved and discover my passions. Somewhere I could gain experience inside and outside of the classroom. In just 2 short years, I have traveled across the country to represent UAB, spoken at various events, advocated for things I’m passionate about like mental health and Fighting Hunger, participated in research studies, served in the Birmingham community, and this is only the beginning. I would not have these opportunity without UAB, and all of the amazing resources they offer. Anyone has the potential to do great things here.. you just have to put yourself out there. Even though it’s scary, the opportunities and experiences you gain from it are incomparable. With this in mind, I’m excited to see where the rest of my undergraduate years take me. Go Blazers 🐉

I choose to attend UAB because of the many opportunities that it offers students; like a wide range of majors, student involvement opportunities, and connections to different career paths and jobs! My favorite thing about UAB is that it’s right in the middle of the city which gives me the ability to stay connected with everything around me and explore new places! If you ever just want to go exploring around Bham, I’m always down! BLAZE ON!

Meet our TrailBlazer of the Week! Hi! My name is Kristine Farag, and I am a junior immunology major on the pre-med track from Carmel, IN. I chose UAB because I loved the city and all the experiences that came with it. Over the past few years, the city and university have provided me with so many opportunities for personal and professional growth. The faculty and student body foster an environment for collaboration and success so everyone can realize their potential. This has to be my favorite thing about UAB -
with a solid support system, our students are able to pursue their interest while finding new ones along the way. Not to mention, living in the Magic City ensures you will never be bored!

Meet our TrailBlazer of the Week! Hey everyone! My name is Remy Stuckey, and I’m a sophomore from Huntsville, Alabama majoring in Genetics on the Pre-Med track. One of the reasons I chose UAB was its focus on challenging students to seek new experiences by providing endless opportunities in areas like research, shadowing, and internships. I was also excited to see how UAB allows its students to create their own path based on what truly interests them. When I finally went on a campus tour, I was amazed at how much UAB already felt like home. Now, one of my favorite things about UAB is its location in Birmingham. Whether it be going to one of my favorite coffee shops or trying another new restaurant, I love all of the experiences this city has offered me! I’m so thankful to be a part of this team and to be a UAB Blazer! 🐉

Meet our TrailBlazer of the Week! Hey there! My name is Vianna Benjamin, and I am from Gulfport, MS! I am a Biology major and Stem Education minor on the pre-med track. I chose UAB because I was looking for a school that focused on research, diversity/inclusivity, and that was located in a great city. UAB was well known for all three, and when I stepped on campus, I instantly knew that this would be the school I could call home for the next years as I pursued my dream of becoming a physician. My favorite thing about UAB is how hard the institution works to make sure the voices of all of the students, faculty and staff are heard!

Meet our TrailBlazer of the Week! Hi! My name is Reilyn Intemann, and I am a sophomore from Fort Mill, SC. I am majoring in pre-nursing with the goal of starting nursing school in the fall and ultimately working in pediatric critical care. Though I am now 7 hours from the place I grew up, Birmingham has quickly become my home away from home, and I have fallen in love with the Magic City. Whether it be shadowing, volunteering, cool coffee shops, music venues, or parks, Birmingham is full of opportunity that makes this urban campus feel like home and its people feel like a second family. I hope you’ll consider joining me! Go Blazers!

Meet our TrailBlazer of the Week! Hey everyone! My name is Lilly Vonderau! I am a senior double majoring in accounting and management. I am a student-athlete on the UAB rifle team and a business student leader in the Collat School of Business! When making my college decision, I would ask myself the same question “But what’s next?” What can I do after spending 4 years at a college? UAB was the only school that could clearly answer that question. The opportunities were endless. My favorite thing about UAB is being in the heart of Birmingham. As much as I wanted to be on the rifle team, UAB shed a new light on everything Birmingham had to offer like awesome jobs, unique entertainment, amazing FOOD, and new friends. So thankful that I chose UAB.

02/10/2020

Meet our TrailBlazer of the Week! Hey y’all! My name is Anna Jones, and I am a senior Neuroscience major from Memphis, TN. I will be starting medical school at UAB this summer. I decided to attend UAB after touring many schools and evaluating the Pre-Medicine and Science departments. In my personal opinion, UAB stood head and shoulders above the other schools that I evaluated. Additionally, input from medical professionals gave UAB glowing recommendations, even calling it “the best pre-medicine program in the South.” The minute I stepped onto UAB’s campus, I fell in love with it and knew that it was the place I wanted to call home for the next four (and eventually eight) years of my life. I also loved the city of Birmingham and the feeling of being in the heart of downtown. After completing almost all of my college career here, my dreams have been realized. I have embraced the UAB experience as well as the culture of the Birmingham community. UAB has given me great role models in my professors; they have not only been interested in my academic success, but also have been a positive influence on my personal development. I do not believe that I would have experienced this personal fulfillment had I not chosen to attend UAB with its terrific faculty. Blaze on!

Congratulations to the 2020-2021 TrailBlazer team! We are so excited for the year to come! 🔥🐉

Meet our TrailBlazer of the Week! Hey y’all! My name is Bailee Drummond and I am a sophomore from Cullman, AL. I’m a psychology major and Spanish minor with the hope of someday becoming a high school counselor! I chose UAB because there are so many opportunities in Birmingham; whether it be academic, professional, or a chance to go and have fun! My favorite thing about UAB is homecoming! Seeing all of the student organizations get involved in the festivities (especially the Gurney Derby!) make this urban campus feel like a college town! Go Blazers!

01/27/2020

Meet our TrailBlazer of the Week! Hey! My name is Anna Robinson, and I’m a sophomore economics major from Sylacauga, AL. UAB was the last university I toured, but it quickly became my first choice. The campus immediately felt like home, and I was amazed at all of the opportunities (and food spots) the university has to offer. Now, almost two years later, I’m still amazed at UAB’s focus on student development- academically, professionally, and emotionally. My favorite part of UAB is the impact I am able to make on the bham community and campus as a student, but Wasabi Juan’s sushi burritos are a close second. Go Blazers!

Meet our TrailBlazer of the Week! Hey!! My name is Katie Young, and I am a sophomore from Memphis, TN. I am a Political Science Major with a minor in Human Rights. I chose UAB because as soon as I got on campus, it felt completely different than any other school I had toured. Being in the middle of downtown BHam is one of my favorite things about UAB, and gives it a totally different energy than other places. There really is just so many fun things to do within blocks of where we get to go to school which just makes our overall experience as students so much greater! Super proud to be a UAB blazer and to get to talk about the Jonas Brothers coming to Birmingham months before and after they were actually here!!

Meet our TrailBlazer of the Week! Hey y’all! My name is Ryan Barnett, and I’m a senior studying Nursing from Arab, AL. On my tour with the TrailBlazers, I could see myself at UAB taking part in all of the amazing opportunities UAB has to offer.

The experiences I’ve had from both an academic and extracurricular standpoint have truly shaped my college experience. I love that UAB is focused on creating an environment that fosters personal and professional growth. I love getting to share my love for UAB on my tours, so come take one with us! Blaze on!

Meet our TrailBlazer of the Week! Hey! My name is Yolanda Amezaga. I am a Junior on the pre-med track majoring in biomedical sciences and minoring in chemistry and biology. I chose UAB because through every campus tour I took in high school, I could see myself here. I come from a small town, so the idea of a buzzing city with many opportunities for not only school, but for food and activities, excited me. My favorite thing about UAB has to be the community. Although we are in Alabama’s largest city, UAB has a close-knit campus. The community here is like a family. I’m excited to see UAB’s family and campus grow! Blaze on :)

Meet our TrailBlazer of the Week! Hi everyone! My name is Barbara Awad, and I’m a senior majoring in Public Health. It’s crazy to think that my time at UAB as an undergrad is almost over, but I would do it all over again if I could! I chose UAB due to the unmatched opportunity of being a part of a growing institution who was actually interested in the success of their students. Being from Birmingham, I have had the chance to watch this city grow because of UAB, and this was definitely a factor in choosing my university. UAB has provided me a place to know and reach my potential, and I hope it will do the same for you! Go Blazers!!!

Meet our TrailBlazer of the Week! Hey! My name is Annie Ensor, and I am a sophomore majoring in Neuroscience with a Forensic Science minor on the Pre-Med track. I chose UAB because of the automatic, at-home feeling that I got from being on campus. Since I am an out-of-state student, this aspect was very important to me. Expecting to just find a city when I came UAB for the first time, I was amazed at the college campus feel that this university offered as well! UAB has brought me so many connections, opportunities, and fun experiences that I will forever be grateful for. My very favorite thing about UAB is the diversity that is present on our campus. I have gotten the chance to learn about so many different cultures, and it is so neat to be able to just walk across campus and maybe hear two or three different languages. I truly believe that UAB is a place where anyone can find their own home away from home.

Meet our TrailBlazer of the Week! Hi! My name is Sawyer Summers, and I’m a senior Industrial Distribution major from Fairhope, Alabama. I chose UAB because, together with the city of Birmingham, it offers an unmatched variety of educational, professional, and just-plain-fun experiences. I love being able to leave my internship, go to class in a beautiful new building, and end the day watching a concert at one of our awesome local venues or hiking at one of the nearby parks.

11/12/2019

Meet our TrailBlazer of Week! Hello friends! My name is Ania, and I am a sophomore majoring in Economics with a Math minor on the Pre-Law track. There are many reasons why I chose UAB, but the main and most important one was the trust and support of UAB staff and the Birmingham community for our students. Everyone that I crossed paths with on campus encouraged me, believed in me, and challenged me to push my boundaries, rather than ever questioning my abilities. From the time you step onto UAB’s campus as a freshman, you are blindly given the trust of people who believe in you, which is extremely empowering. With the knowledge that I have such a strong support system, everyday I become more confident and understand that my “why” and “what if” questions will be welcomed with open arms, driving my curiosity and allowing me to grow. With that, my favorite thing about UAB is the fact that we are a young university which means that everyday, blazers are a part of creating new memories and traditions that will carry on for years to come. I am so proud to call this university my home, and will continue to #ChooseUAB forever. Go blazers! 🐉

Meet our TrailBlazer of The Week! Hey everyone! My name is Michael Ho, and I am currently a sophomore studying Chemistry and French from Chattanooga, Tennessee. As an out-of-state student, UAB appealed to me because of its reputation as an outstanding academic institution with limitless opportunities for students to engage in service learning and professional development. I should also mention my love for UAB’s renowned Foreign Languages department as well! Among many others, my favorite thing about UAB is the Commons staff because they provide for me a sense of family away from home, and are always there as an additional support system for me. Whether it be the other TrailBlazers or the Commons staff, I have come to claim UAB as my home for the next few years. Come hang out with me on a Friday afternoon tour and learn a little more about why I #ChoseUAB #BlazeOn
