Hello Missouri HOSA! I'm Chloe Ong, a rising senior at the Collegiate School of Medicine and Bioscience in St. Louis. I'm honored to be part of your State Officer Team this year as your Vice President of Communications. In the future, I plan to go to med school in order to become an anesthesiologist or pharmacologist. An interesting fact about me is that I dislike chocolate. Aside from being a State Officer, I am also a part of Student Council, NHS, Speech and Debate team, Media Club, Cybersecurity League, and Hackathon along with coxing on a rowing team.

Through HOSA, I've experienced opportunities that ignite my passion for medicine, which is something that I wish upon every member. That's why my personal mission is to grow and educate our increasingly diverse delegation on inequities within healthcare, and to motivate our generation to be the change!
