“My Husky experience is like a puzzle, with each piece contributing diverse experiences that fit together to form my college journey. From interdisciplinary coursework to hands-on translational cancer research and crisis counselling, both academic and extracurricular aspects have shaped my identity – as a curious learner and empathetic listener, I am passionate about mental health and supporting under-represented groups. Each piece of my college puzzle has harmoniously equipped me with invaluable skills that will help me achieve my aspirations of becoming a physician.”
