“One can choose to go back toward safety or forward toward growth. Growth must be chosen again and again; fear must be overcome again and again.”
-Abraham Maslow

I am honored to announce that I will be attending the University of Missouri-Kansas City, School of Dentistry in the Fall 🦷🥼🧑🏽‍⚕️ I will become a dentist in the United States Navy!

This journey of mine has been like no other. From applying twice, rejection letter after rejection letter, editing my personal statement many times to retaking the DAT 3 times. To be honest, I wouldn’t change a single thing. This entire process has made me better equipped to help serve my fellow pre-dental peers and brought forth the birth of “Pre-Denting W/ PK, LLC”. My support system, mainly my father, mother, sister and significant other and my faith has brought me to this point and I am ever so grateful and even more motivated to be great! There were times when I doubted myself, didn’t think I may be good enough to pursue this prestigious profession of dentistry, and many trials and tribulations to deter me from this path. But with perseverance, drive and trust, the limits are endless.

Forthrightly, my motivation derives from my stalwart belief in God, my family’ prevailing sentiments towards excellence, and my personal acceptance of the various challenges to succeed. Therethrough, all my endeavors I am as ever imbued thereby my Judeo-Christian epistemology. I am intrinsically charged by my varied experiences afforded therein my ethnicity and gender. Therefore, from the aforementioned perspectives, I persevere to manifest my predestined healthcare professional service.

Lastly, having witnessed my immediate family members lifelong professional public service. Knowing the value of impressions and the connotations that a facial grimace conveys, I want to contribute to the world's perception of my country. Through dentistry, I can personally impact the world’s perception of my country by ensuring that my shipmates and servicemen are smiling liberators.

There’s a white coat with my name on it and I’m after you Dr. Hollins, DDS.
