A bit about myself:
I am currently a 2nd year medical student at McGill and this is my 2nd year coaching for MedCoach. I completed my Bachelor of Medical Science degree with an Honours Specialization in Pathology and Toxicology at the University of Western Ontario. I had the opportunity to participate in various leadership opportunities while I was at Western. I also worked with Big Brothers Big Sisters as a part of one of their school-based programs. I have experience volunteering in a hospital, working closely with orthopedic surgeons and technicians. Currently in my spare time, I am trying to learn how to play hockey and snowboard, and I love yoga and cardio kickbox!
The reason why I decided to be a part of MedCoach is because when I was applying for medical school, I had to opportunity to speak with a medical student and did a mock interview with him. This person whom I didn’t even know gave me an hour of his time and provided me with so much information, confidence and reassurance that I wasn’t nervous for my interviews anymore! This experience made me want to assist other pre-med students in their journey and share my knowledge.
I applied to McGill medicine as an out-of-province student (originally from Toronto, ON). I applied for medical school during my last year of undergrad and was able to gain acceptance on my 1st attempt. I applied all over Canada (except Memorial University, NOSM, and University of Manitoba) and was accepted by the University of Western Ontario, McMaster, McGill, and wait-listed by Ottawa U. I only interviewed at these 4 schools but was also accepted for an interview at the University of Saskatchewan which I did not attend.
