"Hey everyone! My name is Shuda Xia and I am from Plano, Texas, but I grew up in Qingdao, China. I graduated from Plano Senior High School and I am currently pursuing a biochemistry degree. Over the past few summers I have done research in a cardiology lab at UT Southwestern and was a coauthor in a published paper. In my free time I enjoy hanging out with my friends and trying out new food!"
