Favorite movie:

“I want to be an orthodontist. I was born in Cuba, and came to the United States when I was 9-years-old. Both of my parents were doctors in Cuba. I want to major in biomedical engineering so that I can work in that field while I apply to dental schools. I find both anatomy and physiology interesting. I believe for me orthodontistry will be a great field.” Julio was accepted in September by the University of Texas at San Antonio, but he has applied to several other colleges and will wait before making his school choice.
