During her undergraduate years she was a middle blocker on the A team of UCLA Women’s Club Volleyball, becoming Co-Captain her senior year.

In addition, she was a member of the Vondriska Lab which studies the role epigenetics play in cardiovascular disease in efforts to create new therapies. She is currently interested in pursuing the field of psychiatry as she hopes to help disrupt the generational curse that plagues many communities of color – especially the black community- being the strong stigma against mental health that is entrenched in the culture.

Ranique Brown is a post-Baccalaureate student at La Sierra University. She received her Bachelor’s in Biochemistry from Northern Caribbean University in Mandeville, Jamaica. She was born and raised in Jamaica. She always knew she wanted to become a physician and she understood how beneficial it would be for her to study medicine abroad. She made the decision to retake her pre-requisite courses in the United States so that she could apply to US medical schools and become the best physician possible for her future patients. Ranique’s goal is to become an Emergency Medicine Physician, just like her older sister, however she is still open to exploring the other specialties. Ranique enjoys using her hands, and during the Covid-19 pandemic she discovered her love of crocheting and knitting.
