Elizabeth Manriquez is a first-year intern with the DME program and is part of the Born to Battle podcast transcription team. For Elizabeth, transcription is very “relaxing” and “meditative” compared to her college classes. In high school, Elizabeth was the Salutatorian for her graduating class during the pandemic and remembers the strange graduation she had online with her class. Elizabeth currently studies biochemistry at Texas University at Austin. Elizabeth wants to research medicine when she graduates and go to medical school.
