Kira is currently a sophomore at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI), where she is majoring in biology and minoring in Spanish. She works in the biology lab on campus, and she is also a Biology 101 mentor. Besides studying and working, Kira splits her time between two student organization executive boards. She is the Pledge Trainer for Alpha Phi Omega Service Fraternity and the Director of Campus Outreach for Jagathon: IUPUI’s Dance Marathon. Another important aspect of Kira’s life is her faith, and Michael’s constant belief in God’s plan no matter how much adversity he faced was a true inspiration. Kira has always wanted to be a pediatrician. Michael’s battle with cancer has subsequently narrowed her focus to what she firmly believes is her calling: to be a pediatric oncologist.
