I worked as a TA from my second semester of college up until my last semester, and it was incredibly rewarding and gave me the chance to learn more about everyone.

I also participated in a wide variety of research experiences, both at my school and at other campuses. I fondly recall my research experiences done through AG Bell’s STEM-HEAR program at Johns Hopkins and at the University of Southern California.

I also served as an executive member of various organizations, including but not limited to:

Future Plans:

I will be starting my MD-PhD dual degree at the University of Pennsylvania this August, and I will be there for the next 8 years. I plan to eventually pursue a career in academic medicine.

Proudest Moments:

I am most proud of what I was able to contribute to my department through my advocacy and curriculum innovations as a TA and member of my major’s Student Advisory Board. I am also proud of my research successes, and I am looking forward to pursuing my PhD during my dual-degree training.
