In just three years, Phoebe Langius became a researcher, founding president of iCureHealthFIU and a triple major graduate.
With a 4.0 GPA, she was accepted into the Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine through the early assurance program at FIU Honors College, where she worked on groundbreaking research that could lead to gender-specific medication to enhance memory. Not only did she dedicate her time to her research and take on the position of learning assistant and resident assistant, but she also started a campus chapter of iCureHealth, a student organization that educates students and provides resources related to preventable chronic diseases.
Ambition has always been part of Phoebe’s mindset. She started swimming at age five and enjoyed it so much that she challenged herself to see how far and how fast she could go. Eventually outgrowing the pool, she became an open-water swimmer, a sport that allowed her to travel the world. Because her mom is a Belgian immigrant, she even competed there.
Phoebe’s competitiveness is what kept her going throughout her final two years at FIU. The psychology major immersed herself in school, which led to her adding majors in biology and natural and applied sciences. She will return to FIU in August 2023 as she begins her path to becoming an M.D. and expects to challenge herself to do as much as she can and seize every opportunity that comes her way.
