A Year Ago

In a few days, it’ll be a year since I graduated from a place I have come to call my second home ūüíô — a place where I met¬†amazing people, learned from world-class professors, and finally solidified my career ambitions. Since wearing that cap and gown, listening to the inspiring speakers at my commencement, and…

Tradition

Throwback to my¬†daily routine of walking to class every morning at 8 a.m. // Some¬†of the (many) things I’ve missed since graduation are¬†going to class, taking notes, absorbing¬†an insane amount of information at a fast pace, and organizing¬†meetings and study dates with friends at coffee shops. With two months left¬†of my gap year before medical…

Skyscrapers

Brass Bridges

Walking through Crescent River Park in New Orleans, I was surprised at the stark contrast between the serene riverside and the music-filled, lively streets of the French Quarter. After spending some time absorbing the happenings of Royal and Bourbon Street, the calm area beyond this bridge was much appreciated.
