Nereida Sotelo

LASER Hub Coordinator

My name is Nereida Sotelo and I am currently a second-year medical school at the Ohio State University College of Medicine. As a first-generation Latina in the United States as well as first generation high school and college graduate, I have a first-hand experience as to how important mentorship is for our Latinx youth. I joined LASER because I am passionate about mentoring younger students and helping them achieve their goals. I believe that it is important to have diversity in all aspects of our society, whether it be increasing the diversity amongst medical professionals or increasing the number of Latinx students that pursue an education beyond high school."
