Here's who I am & what I do

My Writing
Former teacher. Current medical student. Forever human.

My path to medical school was non-traditional. It took me a while to know that I wanted to become a physician, and even longer to figure out how to get there. I had many misconceptions about what it meant to be a doctor and what that process looked like. There are no doctors in my family. Much of the information I’ve learned, I discovered on my own. Despite premedical advisors and online forums and other resources, I often found conflicting advice; the process was mysterious and answers seemed elusive. I often felt like I was missing pieces of the puzzle - details that now, looking back, I wish someone had told me

I hope that sharing my story will help to demystify the medical school process for those to come.
