Meet Kelly Tamura! Kelly is a 1st-year Bioengineering major as well as one of our new Mentorship Heads for the 2021-2022 school year — read on to learn more about her!
How'd you hear about BMES?
I got an email about the first general meeting and I decided to check it out!
How long have you been involved with BMES?
This year I was a permanent member on the BMES cell team and I was apart of the Adenine family. I had so much fun meeting all the other bioengineers that I decided I wanted to be more involved for this upcoming term.
What are your primary responsibilities as a Mentorship Head?
Making dope social events for members to get to know each other!
To what are you most looking forward about your position?
I'm really excited to meet a ton of new people - I think that's the greatest.
What's one thing you've learned from BMES this year?
I'm starting to learn from the past mentorship heads about how to create a fun community so that has been cool.
Which family are you in?
Favorite BMES memory?
I loved the Holiday Party - that was so so so fun. The activities were great!
Favorite class you've taken at UCLA?
Bioengineering 10! I loved reading the articles and hearing researchers talk. It was very inspiring!
What do you like to do in your free time?
I love listening to music and doing anything active (one of my favs is looking like an absolute fool playing tennis).
Describe yourself as a Care Bear.
I'd be an orange Care Bear (my fav color) with a planet or something celestial as my belly badge, and I'd like the power of teleportation.
Anything else you'd like to share?
Cream cheese frosting ruins red velvet cake and I stand by that.
