Monica Lopez

Alternate, UMGC Asia Undergraduate Representative


I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. I am the oldest of five siblings. I am a first-generation college student in my family. I am a second-year student pursuing an associate’s degree in psychology. After high school I pursued medicine and became a certified surgical technologist with five years of experience. I am currently a member of the Association of Surgical Technologists. I plan to follow my passion for medicine even further by becoming a nurse. In my free time I enjoy reading self-help books and spending time with my two dogs.
