Interests/Hobbies: I like to go hiking, or to a restaurant eating any kind of Asian food or traveling.

Why I chose Christiana Care and Delaware: CCHS - The breadth of opportunities at CCHS is overwhelming as is the support and encouragement offered by the program directors, faculty and staff.  This is not a program that leaves you on your own.  Of course, Dr. Friedland is probably a significant part of everyone’s decision to come here.  Endlessly welcoming, friendly and read to support any project or avenue you choose to pursue. The best thing about Delaware is  it’s state parks and it’s proximity to so many big cities.
