Hi Vols! My name is Kendall Flores and I am a junior majoring in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Tennessee. I am from Atlanta, Georgia. Some of my hobbies include cooking, gardening, painting and exploring museums!
Some may say I was destined to go to UTK because my mother attended the University of Tennessee and my grandfather was a professor here. When I first arrived on campus it was a little overwhelming being an out of state student and not really knowing anymore but I began to join many different organizations and eventually I met “my people”. One of the organizations I joined was the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), where I currently serve as the president of NSBE which allows me to pour back into the organization for all that it has done for me. I am also heavily involved in the Jones Center for Leadership and Service on our campus as an Ignite team leader, VOLbreaks Leader, a member of the 2021 Emerging Leaders Cohort and the 2023 Leadership Knoxville Scholars Cohort. This past summer I began working in the Engineered Designs for Biomedicine Laboratory (EDB) on our campus researching drug delivery systems to treat cancer.
Everyday on this campus I continue to learn about myself and all of the good I can do with my major as well as grow into my greatest self! If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out to me. I can not wait to welcome you into the Volunteer family, go Vols!
