Da’Leana Sullivan is a Health Science major with an emphasis in Pre-med. She is from Kansas CIty, Missouri. After graduating, she plans to attend graduate school to earn a master’s degree in medical sciences. She then plans on going to medical school to become an OB/GYN.
“I chose Mizzou because of all the different things that I can get involved in on campus. I wanted to go to a college that was not too far away from home as well and Mizzou offered that,” she says. “I choose my respective program because of the flexibility and being able to still be a Pre-Med student. With the flexibility of my major I was able to add on a minor and two certificates.”
Da’Leana also serves as the Vice President of Promoting, Advocating, Sisterhood, and Service (P.A.S.S.), an outreach mentoring program that mentors young girls at Hickman High School. Their main mission is to promote an environment that will help the girls grow mentally, emotionally, and academically.
What made you pursue a career in healthcare?
I want to pursue a career in healthcare because I want to help minorities. There are people in my family that struggle with different diseases and I want to be able to help them and others. I also have a huge spot in my heart to help expecting mothers.
What is your best advice for incoming Mizzou CHS students?
My best piece of advice is to use all the resources that are available here at Mizzou. Mizzou has so much to offer their students and taking advantage of those things will better your experience on campus.
What dorm did you live in your freshman year?
I lived in Bluford during my freshman year on campus. I really enjoyed staying there because I was close to a dinning hall, a Starbucks, and a Mizzou Market.
What is your favorite Mizzou memory?
My favorite Mizzou memory is being apart of a FIG during my freshman year. We were able to do the Tiger Run together and navigate our first year of college together with some help.
