Why Stritch?
I chose to attend Stritch because of its welcoming and friendly community, which was really apparent in just the few times that I visited the school. From the interview day to second look, I couldn't help but notice all the smiles on the students' faces and how down-to-earth the faculty and administrators were. I already felt like I was a part of the Stritch family before I even started the first day of classes. Because I knew medical school would be rigorous academically, I wanted to study at a school with a collaborative student body and supportive faculty/administrators.

Involvement in and out of School
STAR Research Program, Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association (APAMSA), Family Medicine Interest Group (FMIG), New Life Volunteering Society (NLVS) Free Clinic, Pet Therapy

Career goals/interests 
I have an open mind about all areas of medicine, but I am currently interested in Family Medicine because I really enjoy the continuation of care that I would be able to provide my patients. I'm sure that as my exposure to the medical field increases through rotations next year, I will better be able to better discern my interests.
