2016 IACRAO Leadership and Service for Underrepresented Students Scholarship


Carolina Escobedo

Transferring from Olney Central College to Southern Illinois University at Carbondale.

I am currently a student at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, having transferred from Olney Central College. I am majoring in Radiologic Sciences with a specialization in Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Computed Tomography. My goal is to be an amazing MRI Technologist at a hospital or clinic. My dream job would be to become a clinical instructor, which means that I would be teaching students in the clinical site. Something unique about myself includes the hardships I have endeavored and yet I am still moving forward. No it isn't always easy, but there's only one way to go and that is forward so I continue along that path.
