StMU Research Scholars

Featuring Scholarly Research, Writing, and Media at St. Mary’s University

Samantha Beltran

I was born and raised on the border of Texas and Mexico in the city of El Paso. Upon graduating in the Spring of 2022, I will receive a bachelor’s degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry and a certification in Public Health. After graduation, I will pursue a Doctorate degree in Medicine that specializes in urology or gastroenterology.

While at St. Mary’s University I assisted in the founding of “Girl Up StMU,” an organization empowering women leaders all around the world to defend gender equality. Additionally, I participated in a Research Fellowship under the direction of Dr. Gray. Moreover, I am also a part of other organizations such as, Sigma Sigma Sigma National sorority where I served as President and as College Panhellenic Council Chair. In my spare time, I volunteer at University Hospital, where I have had the opportunity to interact with patients and tutor students from underserved communities through the organization, “Learn To Be Tutoring.”
