Her speech, “Time is Always Ticking,” alluded to the recent solar eclipse as a symbol of observing time passing. Lemus used this analogy to encourage the students to pursue their dreams.

She said that speaking at her alma mater was a bittersweet experience. “I owe so much to my old teachers and faculty… agreeing to this [presentation] has made me realize how thankful we all should be for those that have helped mold our past. Once I graduate… I plan on keeping this mindset alive.”

Lemus is an Honors neuroscience major on a pre-med track. She plans to attend medical school upon graduation, with the hopes of shaping lives “through clinical care, medical research advocacy.”
