University of Virginia | Pre-Med and Global Studies
Navy | Torpedoman
Hey there, it’s my pleasure to meet you! My name is Jaime Vidaurre, but my friends call me V. I was born in Peru and grew up in Paterson, NJ, until I enlisted in the Navy at the age of 20 where I fulfilled the duties of a Torpedoman in the Submarine Force for 5 years before transitioning to Submarine Support in the Navy Reserves for 2 years.
Educational journeys can be complex and unique. My journey continues as a Posse Scholar at the University of Virginia, where I’m pursuing a Pre-med track and Global Studies while enjoying the beautiful sport of rowing. The community here has been nothing short of extraordinary and supportive.
I’m honored to have the opportunity to assist in fulfilling the vision of NSI and help provide the resources that may be needed for you to accomplish your goals of attending a higher place of education. I’m only one person, but my support system consists of an extremely talented group of resourceful Veterans here at UVA who are all willing to help you succeed.
Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions about the University of Virginia or about school in general.
