What are you looking forward to this service term?
I'm really looking forward to meeting individuals who are passionate about social responsibility and healthcare equity, and I am excited to interact with individuals who are willing to share their life stories with me. I hope that the workshops I conduct and the support I provide will not only promote community development but also change my perspective in ways that only direct experience can.
 
What are your plans after AmeriCorps service?
I am looking forward to a career in medicine that integrates science and social consciousness to solve important problems in healthcare today.
