Lourdes Lagunes who goes by the name Lucas Walker is a first-generation, undocumented, LGBTQ student who finally decided to live for himself rather than continue to strive for perfection in order to please those around him. He came out to his family at the age of 12 and was denied and ignored but it only made him more sure of himself and more passionate about finding his identity and his passion. At the moment he is attending his town’s community college where he will receive his associates degree in pre-medicine in the fall while being the president of his Honors Society Chapter and having earned Cum Laude. His biggest dream is to attend physician’s asssistants school in order to work and specialize in pediatric cardiothoracic. He will be applying to nursing school in the upcoming year in order to further his education and to gain the necessary 200+ in-person clinical hours needed to be considered for PA school.
