Tyler is a current Senior in high school, with high hopes for his success at the University of Iowa during college beginning this year. Already accepted by Iowa, Tyler plans to go into pre-medical studies while earning a degree in biomedical sciences. He has also been accepted for the Honor Roll program for the University of Iowa, and will utilize this to his advantage by working diligently at his studies. Tyler Will then go into Medical school where he plans to become an anesthesiologist and work in a large Urban hospital to help those in need. The funding he hopes to receive will go toward his first year of college, covering a portion of tuition and expenses. Tyler comes from a family of 5, and will be the first of anyone in his family to go to a four year university. Due to challenges within the family, financial burdens have created a struggle on Tylers hopes of academic success while at the University of Iowa, but refuses to let anything hold him back from his dream.
