Andrew Jimenez

Encouraged by his great-grandfather’s spurs and his father’s ever-present support, this person is driven to make a difference in helping Latinos live healthier lives. He is his family’s first college and grad school student, and he works as a research assistant while he studies health promotion. He’s open to new topics and challenges because he believes in the mantra, “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”
Andrew obtained his bachelors in Biology from Whittier College and is currently attending Claremont Graduate University to optain his masters in Public Health with a concentration in Health Promotion.
Andrew applied to the Éxito! Leadership Program because he thought it would provide him with an understanding of health disparities  as well as how to go about furthering my career within academia. Furthermore, he thought it would expose him to new and current research and discover new research interests. 
"[Éxito!] definitely has motivated me to pursue a PhD after my masters when it previously wasn't a thought," said Andrew.
