I am currently in my 2nd year of medicine at the University of Toronto. I have a strong passion for the neurosciences and have taken on an interest in surgery and thus hope to meld these interests towards a career in neurosurgery. I love to talk to peers and students about their work and social life and provide any help that they may ask for. This is why I want to be a coach because I find giving back and mentoring to students is very rewarding and a valuable experience that should be appreciated by the coaches.
Time management and balancing work/school/extracurricular life is one of my strengths and what I’m known for amongst my peers. In my spare time I love to watch TV, play video games and participate in badminton, biking, and basketball with friends. These extracurricular activities were the ones I maintained throughout medical school but when I was applying I also took interests in music by playing the saxophone and guitar; both of which I continue to this day time from time.
I am very excited to coach students to success and am looking forward to working with you!
I have experience applying to both Canadian and American medical schools. While being familiar with the application process for both systems I was also invited to complete interviews and received acceptances from schools in both countries. Within Canada specifically I applied to the: University of Toronto, University of Ottawa, McMaster University, Western University, Queen’s University, University of British Columbia, and Dalhousie University. I interviewed at University of Toronto and University of Ottawa.
Within American I have experience applying to 20 different schools across 8 states and specific interview experience (traditional and MMI) and acceptance for Wayne State School of Medicine in Detroit, Michigan and State University of New York. I applied to medical school twice before being accepted after completing my 4th year of undergraduate education where I received a Bachelors of Science.
