Linden High School senior Nicole Del Carmen Lopez was recently featured on Telemundo 47 in a Spanish-language story about future doctors in the Hispanic community. 


She was interviewed during her time last summer at the Hispanic Center of Excellence Summer Youth Scholars Program at Rutgers University.

She was one of the three LHS students who were accepted into the Rutgers program, along with Emily Garcia and Nicole Molano.

“The first day I got there I felt like I was dreaming,” Del Carmen Lopez says at the beginning of the feature. “It felt like a movie seeing all of these medical students and professors.”
