Fun Fact: I love corgis!
“I decided I wanted to pursue medicine while attending business school after being exposed to the self-seeking nature of business, which is the complete opposite of the compassion and service that I wanted to pursue both in life and in my career. Sure, pre-med is competitive, yet I’ve seen time and time again the willingness to help each other not only with academics but also when things get mentally exhausting through kind and encouraging words.
I saw firsthand what it means to be compassionate when I underwent double jaw surgery through my surgeon. He really showed me what it means to take care of people in their most vulnerable state. I think God was really working in him to inspire me to serve His Kingdom in the same way, and I hope to be able to bring healing to the vulnerable all while glorifying His name!”

Fun Fact: I hate cilantro
“As a pre-dental student, I have definitely felt overwhelmed at many points. With the cutthroat nature of pre-med culture and the stress that is accompanied by not only maintaining good grades but also keeping up with extracurriculars and research, it is so easy to oftentimes forget that we are people who are called to serve and be kind towards others. GMMA to me is something that I hope can help others not feel that overwhelming pressure associated with the pre-med lifestyle, but to remember the greater purpose in what we are doing, which is to glorify Him and to love others first and foremost. I look forward to doing God’s work through missions and service acts in NYC this year!”

Fun Fact: west coast, best coast
“I’ve always wanted to go into medicine to treat those who may not have had all the support I personally had been blessed with, wherever they may be. I know God had a huge heart for those who are disadvantaged and during my time here in New York, it is something that God has constantly challenged me to do. But being a pre-med in the city, it is definitely intimidating and hard to find the purpose to do so. Struggling through the constant academic and social pressure is something I’m dealing with all the time and finding a community has not always been easy. GMMA has been the community of brothers and sisters who constantly bless me and build me up. Through the amazing service, fellowship, and mentorship of this community, I am reminded of the purpose and power that God has given us. I am super excited for what God has in store for us at NYU GMMA and look forward to serving with my fellow brothers and sisters!”

Fun Fact: I’ve seen Avengers Endgame 8 times!
“As believers we are called by God to pursue greater callings with the main purpose of building and glorifying His kingdom, while also sharing the good news with others and through our own lives. Ever since I was a young girl, God has placed a deep passion for medicine and His people on my heart and being able to care for and advocate for greater healthcare for those who need it most is why medicine and public health mean so much to me. GMMA shares this same heart to serve and bless others prayerfully and missionally and I am so thankful for the opportunity to pursue God’s heart for his people here in NYC and beyond!”
