Born on the island of Maui, Hawai’i, and raised in the small town of Pahrump, Nevada, KayLee Freitas brings a blend of cultures and experiences with her. As a first-generation college graduate, she reached a significant milestone by obtaining her Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences in May 2023. Currently, KayLee dedicates her gap year to working as a clinical research recruiter in ADHD and ASD clinical trials, alongside her volunteer work in rural pop-up clinics and preparation for the MCAT. KayLee has her sights set on medical school and aims to practice medicine in Nevada, addressing healthcare accessibility, especially for the AAPI community. In her spare time, she enjoys unleashing her inner diva with karaoke sessions and exploring the world through travel, fueling her love for new adventures. Having experienced invaluable support and inspiration during her time as a 2023 OCA Mentee, KayLee is eager to pay it forward by sharing her knowledge and empowering the next generation of AAPI youth leaders to do the same.
