Graduated from University of California - Berkeley in May 2015, but I still bleed blue and gold. First year medical student, learning how to balance school, learning, research, extracurricular activities, friends and life's many distractions. So excited to see what adventures lay ahead! Love traveling (I've been to over 50 countries!), trying new things like sky diving and shark cage diving, skiing, going to raves, reading, wine tasting and of course, relaxing with friends.
