Michelle Zhou ’18
Major: Business Administration
Minor: Art Scholarship Recipient
Pre-dental student Michelle Zhou spent a semester abroad in the Arusha Region of Northern Tanzania, conducting research on tusk breakages in African elephants across protected areas. “My research on elephant tusks has greatly impacted my commitment to dentistry because I realized my passion for diet and how that affects the teeth. Elephant teeth and human teeth have similar structure, so learning about the tusks parallels my career interest.” Michelle has been accepted into the Class of 2022 at UT Health-San Antonio School of Dentistry.
