Hello everyone. My name is Zarin Hoque and I’m majoring in Biology with a minor in Global Entrepreneurship. After I graduate, I plan on attending medical school. I was born in Reno, but I have lived in Las Vegas for most of my life. In my free time I like to bake, take long walks, listen to music, go on adventures, and eat chocolate. I’m not much of a t.v. or movie person, but I enjoy watching documentaries and reading different books. One fun fact about me: I love stuffed animals!

Hi, my name is Halley Darwin. I am a Pre-Professional Biology Major, and I either want to pursue becoming a dentist or a doctor. Aside from school I like to spend quality time with family and friends, go to concerts, eat out, learn about different cultures, and occasionally attend Zumba classes. I want to contribute to a club culture that strives for excellence in everything we do together, so that way, we may be steps closer to accomplishing our goals in becoming quality, future healthcare providers. Feel free to ask me any questions or say hi if you see me around campus!!

Animal Welfare Co-chair
Hi AED! My name is Marisa Black and I’m a pre-professional biology major. I have had the dream of becoming a veterinarian since I was eight years old, and I discovered my passion for horses and livestock through the 4-H program. I have 25 animals at home, but the hooved animals I discovered in 4-H are the ones I aspire to work with as a veterinarian. When I’m on campus, I’m usually in the honors college, but in my free time I am always at the barn spending time with my horse or going hiking! I have been a part of the Heaven Can Wait feral cat clinics since I was sixteen years old, and I can’t wait to meet all of you there to show you what we do for the cats of Las Vegas!
