“I have wanted to become a dentist for as long as I can remember. My grandmother was actually the reason I became interested in dentistry. Accompanying her to her dental appointments sparked an interest in me that has led me to where I am today. My grandma believed in me and would always tell me that I could be anything I wanted. The fact that I am currently achieving my goal at Rutgers School of Dental Medicine is a dream come true,” Almonte said.
