Favorite activities to do in the Twin Cities? The public library! Baked goods (shoutout to Black Walnut and Patisserie 46)! Dog-watching! Sniffing plants at the Como Conservatory!
What would you change (areas of development) about the University of Minnesota Medical School? I would love to see a greater proportion of faculty who represent the diverse communities in which we train, here in the Twin Cities.
Have you participated in any student organizations? If so, why did you select those organizations and what has been your experience? I joined the board of PRIDE in Healthcare during my first year, hoping to meet other queer health professions students and get plugged into local advocacy efforts - and I'm so glad that I did! I also got to be a member of White Coats for Black Lives during my first two years, and have continued to feel energized by the ongoing passion and dedication of my fellow students to creating a culture of anti-racism in medicine. Phi Chi and Med Students for Choice were also great experiences that allowed me to meet some incredible folks.
