What inspired you to pursue your program?
I have been in and out of a lot of hospitals and clinics, especially when my mom struggled through long-term illnesses and surgeries. Through these experiences I have seen the impact that good and bad care can make, and how it can affect entire families and communities. With this and my love of science, I knew that I wanted a permanent place in medicine to help make a positive difference in patient care.
What are you looking forward to most this upcoming year?
I’m looking forward to meeting my peers, faculty, and staff. I am also excited to enter the world of medicine as a student and to explore research opportunities.
Best piece of advice
My mom always taught me how important it is to keep your sense of humour, and to be able to laugh at yourself.
Lifeguard and Water Safety Instructor!
What’s next on your BC bucket list?
I’d love to go camping in Haida Gwaii one day. For now, I’m really looking forward to exploring as many hiking trails as possible!
