Extracurricular Activities: I’m involved in Red Cross Blood Drive, I participate in pre-medical activities where medical schools come in and talk about what they’re looking for. There are occasionally speakers that come in and I attend as many of those as possible. I work outside of school as a certified nursing assistant (CNA) at a nursing home, I volunteer at the hospital, and at a free clinic in Northfield.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience? In what ways?
Being part of the pre-med community has been really positive for me. Having a supportive community there, and being part of the Red Cross Blood Drive makes me feel like I’m part of something bigger than myself, which has been powerful.
