Why I chose the University of Minnesota Medical School

I chose the University of Minnesota for a few reasons. The most important was my experience at Revisit Day. It was here that I learned just how driven and committed the University of Minnesota Medical School was to diversity and equity. I also have lived in MN my whole life and have all of my friends and family here to support me along my journey. I'm also a big Gopher at heart as I attended the U of M as an undergraduate. Go Gophers! Rah :)

Medical interests

I plan to go into Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Community Involvement

I try to be involved with the community as much as possible. Here at the UMN I have volunteered with the Office of Admissions and held different leadership positions with the Student National Medical Association. When the murder of George Floyd sparked riots in the community I got involved with distribution sites and also became a distribution team leader for Mask Up North Minneapolis, a project started to help combat the disproportionate effects of COVID-19 within this community.
