This past year has been one of the most incredible and transformative years of my life. I matched into a specialty I love at such an excellent institution. Alongside my role as the External Affairs National Committee Co-Chairperson of the SNMA, I served as an interim Regional Director for the SNMA and with some help […]

Final Quarter

Last Friday, I delivered my presentation on “The Pediatric Airway” and took my Anesthesia final exam (JESUS TAKE THE WHEEL), thus officially ending my Anesthesia rotation. Now that I’ve powered through that experience, I’m about 3/4 of the way done with my fourth year!! Good God, time flies by so freakin’ fast. I now have […]

The Influence of Racism

First off, I want to give a shoutout to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as we celebrate his legacy as well as all the sacrifices that so many people in both the past and the present have made in order to guarantee everyone access to the civil rights that they deserve. While he wouldn’t be […]
