Recipient of a Student Scholarship for the Conference on Medical Student Education
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 on my experience of medical school 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 write from my roots, to better empower families and children navigating immigration as I once had and to facilitate the healing of trauma within these families that is often passed down from one generation to the next.Meet More Recipients
