Hello, I am Megha Ambalia. I am a junior majoring in Biology and minoring in Neuroscience. I am on the pre-dental track and hope to become a dentist in future. I am from Rajkot, India.

Aside from being an International Ambassador for the College of Arts and Sciences, I am also the Vice President of the International Student Council. I also conduct undergraduate research in Dr. Famulski’s laboratory in the Biology department. I love dancing and have been a part of Kentucky Karana, a Bollywood dance club.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here at University of Kentucky and would be glad to offer any information about the College of Arts and Sciences. Feel free to contact me!


Kameron Kraus, Biology Major - USA

Hello everyone! My name is Kameron Kraus, and I am a sophomore Biology major here at UK. I am from Northern Kentucky, and I graduated from St. Henry District High School in 2019. I am on a Pre-Medical track with the ultimate goal of one day becoming a physician. 

Apart from being an ambassador for the College of Arts and Sciences, I am a member of Beta Theta Pi fraternity, and I also work as a General Chemistry Peer Tutor at The Study. I am also in the Lewis Honors College. This past spring, I worked on a data mapping project in the College of Education to map out degree plans at all seven of Kentucky’s public universities with the goal of creating an all-inclusive, seamless transfer portal system.

My time here at UK has been extremely enjoyable. Please feel free to reach out to me about anything UK, the College of Arts and Sciences, Pre-Med, or anything else you may think of! I am always happy to help.

Xu Zhang, Mathematical Economics Major - China

Hello everyone. I am Xu Zhang but you can call me James. I am from China and I am majoring in Mathematical Economics. I am a part of a 2+2 program between Beijing Institute of Techinology - Zhuhai and the University of Kentucky. Because of this, I will graduate with two degrees in four years. One of the main reasons why I chose to study at the University of Kentucky is because UK will provide me with a better education. Not only that but studying abroad will broaden my horizons and set me up for my future. UK provides countless opportunities for growth and development. This allows me to be prepared for gradute school. My dream is to earn my Masters in Applied Data Sciences in Boston.
