The white coat is a scary, scary thing, and I'm still trying to figure out if I should have one. If you like screaming about ethnic rage, dance, or the woes of medical education, we should probably do some of those fun activities that friends do.

I have few answers, many questions. Dialogue is huge. Feel free to email with questions and comments!




Reproductive Rights Reflection

She doesn’t know that, just on the other side of the door, there is a beautiful room filled with the smell of eucalyptus, sounds of water trickling and dimmed lighting dedicated to putting her mind at rest.

Graduating from the University of Central Florida in 2015, Morgan chose to remain at UCF for her medical school education (Go Knights!). She is currently a third-year medical student interested in pursuing pediatrics. Her long history in performing arts has kept her writing, singing, and painting through medical school to balance the rigor of the schedule. She also unwinds by cooking and snuggling with her cat, Belvedere.
