What influenced you to become a doctor? 
I decided to pursue medicine after participating in a health and cultural exchange program in Santiago, Chile after my sophomore year in college. I had the opportunity to shadow at a public hospital and volunteer at a children rehab center, and I loved every part of it. I was always interested in the sciences and in pursuing a service oriented field because I grew up with parents who were math/science teachers. My experiences in Santiago helped me realize that medicine was a beautiful confluence of these two passions of mine.


Favorite Memory at TEAK:
One of my favorite memories at TEAK was the camping trip we all took together as a class. Not only did I enjoy being in the outdoors, but I was also with amazing company. This trip gave me the opportunity to spend quality time with my class and share a wonderful experience with them.


Advice for current TEAK Fellows:
Keep pursuing your interests, be open-minded and give back when you can. Life might get busy, but keep in touch with family and friends!
