Why I Serve:

I serve because it allows me to foster a symbiotic relationship between myself and the community around me. I am passionate about nurturing connections and conversations between diverse subject areas, unique needs, and various community leaders all aimed at working towards novel, creative tools for change. Ultimately, I am extremely grateful for the guidance of the Ingram Scholars Program at Vanderbilt University, with which I hope to expand my knowledge about enacting tangible, positive impact through service along a multifaceted pre-MD/PhD pathway.
