What makes you passionate about medicine?

Growing up in a black household and relying on the healthcare workers in my family such as my mom, my aunt, and holder cousins, I was surrounded by resilient and self-supporting mindsets that I tend to consistently reflect on. As a current 2nd-year first generation Biology Pre-Med major, my engagement in college and biology allows me to learn how to provide solutions for the concerns society has today in terms of environmental education, social changes, and global communication in which I would aid in the development of universal healthcare and social justice for all. I was able to grow my leadership and advocacy skills by participating in more social justice and representative-based work to assure myself I was capable of change, despite the persona I was expected to be. Being family-oriented, I wanted to encourage domestic equality and welfare for all as I started to work with grant-making organizations by assisting in distributing $19,000 to 5 different non-profits that helped women and girls through philanthropy and leadership workshops. Like permanent branding, racial discrimination had urged me to become more confident in my passion for further diversifying the medical field as it is predominantly aimed towards those who are not of color. Though despite this limitation, I continue to yearn to bring more inclusivity and justice to the medical field; nevertheless embracing the traditions and morals my mother had made me remember like a nursery rhyme beyond all else. As a young Black girl in America, I realized I was systematically confined by a box of expectations that required me to hide who I am, and with this, I have never done so.

How to deal with racial discrimination in college and future career?

I am excited about beginning the second quarter of my life, however, the aching fear is always scratching my back. I am scared to go to many places because I do not want to deal with racism but I know I have to encounter it one day. I know my first reaction will be to cry but I want to be able to deal with these things maturely. #race-discrimination #future #scared #helping #college-advice #personal-development

Will complete equal rights be granted to all colored people?

It is said that we are all equal no matter what. But, I don't understand why bias takes place in jobs and school selections. I was wondering if equal rights will ever be considered no matter what race one race is or their background. #race #race-equality #equality #activism #race-discrimination #ethics
