Journey Medicine to Africa

I could say that my path to medicine began when I entered the Peace Corps and was sent to Tanzania, East Africa. Africa offered me several challenges: a new language, difficult living conditions, shocking poverty—but working through these challenges equipped me with a skill set. I came to understand and appreciate the need for tolerance, patience, and compassion when dealing with people who are different from me. Peace Corps also began to lay a certain foundation: the conviction to work with a diverse population and the beginning tools of perseverance.
