Meet 19-year old Ali Mirzazadeh Javaheri who is a junior studying biology at #PortlandState. Born in Yazd, Iran, Ali came to Lake Oswego, Oregon at the age of 17 to study abroad and pursue his dream of becoming a cardiovascular surgeon. He transferred from @PortlandCommCollege in 2016 to PSU where he fell in love with the university’s metropolitan setting. He says, “Compared to the other state universities, PSU is in the heart of the city where the professional opportunities are incomparable. I knew that this is the place where I could see myself growing and thriving.” Ali’s passion for biology stems from his fascination of living organisms at a young age and the opportunities the field presents to study and repair human bodies from disease and make a difference in people’s lives. Despite the challenges that came with his transition as a transfer student in an urban campus of nearly 30,000 students, Ali is the type of student who maximizes opportunities to better himself and his community. Ali is a member of PSU’s Iranian Student Association of Portland and the @pdxbrains club. Often with a smile on his face and a warm presence, he also actively attends campus events such as International Night. Ali also juggles work and volunteer responsibilities that include shadowing a cardiovascular surgery in Duke University, serving as a mentor for the Equity Empowerment Corps and tutoring his college peers on calculus, biology, chemistry and physics. On top of a heavy extracurricular and workload, Ali is a true scholar dedicated to his studies and career aspirations by being a part @BUILDEXITO and maintaining a 4.0 GPA and consecutively making it on the President’s and Honors lists. Ali’s favorite food cart on campus is Chopollos, which specializes in Mexican cuisine. His favorite place to study is the second floor of the PSU Library. His advice for future Vikings is to never give up when pursuing their goals. He says, “Every goal will come with their own obstacles but never feel discouraged. Stay healthy and always try to find a balance.” When he graduates in the spring of 2020, Ali plans to pursue medical school. #myPSUstory at OHSU OUS Collaborative Life Sciences Building and Skourtes Tower
