What drew you to the field of medicine?

My inspiration for medicine is driven by my passion to help others. Throughout my life, I have been committed to serving my community and trying to make a difference in the lives around me. During my volunteer experiences and doctor shadows, I saw how the doctors made an impact advocating for their patients beyond their treatment plan. I want to be that advocate and give a voice to those that need it most.

What are your future plans?

I plan to pursue a career in pediatrics. While I’m not sure about the specific field, I am intrigued by high pace fields that require on the spot decision making. At the same time, I am passionate about patient care and building relationships with patients. I hope to field a field that combines the two. I am also committed to working in underserved communities and hope to pursue that during and after medical school. I'm excited to explore all of these areas over the next seven years.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
