STFM Foundation Student Scholar
I am a global rugrat hailing from India, Australia, and Massachusetts. I completed my undergraduate education at Brandeis University in Health, Science, Society and Policy, and Women's and Gender Studies. I am graduating from the University of Massachusetts Medical School with the hopes of entering into a combined family medicine/psychiatry residency program.
When I am not in the hospital, I am an avid fiction reader and writer. As a first generation, woman of color, I realized early that my medical school experience was quite unique from that of the majority of my peers. Although higher education has provided me with incredible medical knowledge and resources, through my own roots, I have come to understand the value and beauty of different cultures' perspectives on health. I hope to one day use my career to empower families and children navigating immigration, as I once had, and to facilitate the healing of trauma within these families passed down from one generation to the next.Meet More Recipients
