Greetings! I am a fourth year medical student at FIU Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine. I received by bachelor's degree with a major in Biomedical Sciences and minor in Psychology from the University of South Florida. I am excited to highlight student voices through narrative medicine with Mosaic in Medicine. This is a great opportunity to incorporate humanities and medical education through reflective writing, hearing and telling stories, and sharing world views. I love reading, nature and dogs!
