I am originally from the Bronx, New York and I’m now a first year medical student at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. I advocate for greater diversity within the medical field and a paradigm shift in medical education. I am energized by dance and stories of overcoming struggle, social justice, and Habesha food.

I am a proud alumnus of Louisiana State University, and yes, I do bleed purple and gold. I’m in the Class of 2018 at LSU Health Shreveport School of Medicine. I’ve run one marathon and a few halves – the latter being my favorite distance of the two. I believe in daily ice cream intake. When I’m not studying or running, I’m exploring new workout classes and outdoor adventures, training my large and adorable dog, Gumbeaux, or knitting to keep my fidgety fingers busy.
