M4

I grew up in Canton, MI and went to the nearby University of Michigan where I studied Biopsychology Cognition Neuroscience (BCN for short). I am completing my last year of medical school at Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine and am in the middle of applying to Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) residencies.

Outside of medicine I am as one friend put it “a dedicated gym human” and enjoy playing basketball, football, weightlifting…basically anything active I can be convinced to try. Time with friends and family is always a plus. Any questions are welcome-premed advice, medical school advice, difficulties in school, gap year tips, or even anything in life outside of school.

I’m a native Singaporean and have been called home to study medicine in Duke-NUS Medical School. My interests are in medical missions and public health. I’m deeply inspired by the works of Paul Farmer – he is one of the biggest reasons I decided to pursue a career in medicine.

Being part of a military family, I’ve spent most of my life shuttling between Arizona and Singapore. With a large part of my adult life spent in the desert heat waves. I received both my undergraduate and master’s degree in Physiology at the University of Arizona (Go Cats!). During my time as an undergrad, I held leadership positions in 2 academic clubs and graduated with honours and summa cum laude. I spent my graduate years in a neurophysiology lab studying sensory feedback.

Getting into medical school is a major accomplishment and one that requires an organised and polished application. Let me help you get there.

Hey everyone! My name is Erin O’Keefe and I am a current 2nd year medical student at the University of Miami! I am originally from Michigan, but attended undergrad at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale (can’t get away from the sunshine state!).

In my free time I love to workout, spend time with friends and family, and hit the beach when I can! I have found that working out and maintaining a healthy lifestyle has been crucial in medical school and is something I am very passionate about! Looking forward to getting to know you!

Anna

M1

I am a first year medical student at Indiana University.  I have taken an unconventional pathway to medical school—I hold a Master’s degree in epidemiology from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and I worked for four years as the project manager for several large observational clinical studies on pediatric diarrhea and child health in sub-Saharan Africa.  My background in public health has given me a deep awareness of the ways in which disease is a function of inequality and inattention, and I intend to continue to work on issues in international health over the course of my career.

Before applying to medical school, I completed post-baccalaureate classes in the evening, including two semesters in which I was pregnant.  I submitted my primary application for AMCAS five days after giving birth to my daughter, who was just over a year old when I entered medical school.  Being the parent—and particularly the mother—of a young child while in medical school has given me a unique perspective on time management, self-care, and measures of achievement in medical school.

My name’s Ashley and am a first year medical student at Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine in Scranton, PA. I have a degree in Biology from the University of California, Berkeley and worked in youth development and diabetes prevention with the Micmac Tribe in Northern Maine. In my spare time I enjoy gardening and cooking.

Anthony is a mentor in the medical field with MyMentor.

Anthony

M2

I’m an MS2 at UT-Health San Antonio, and I’m a VERY non-traditional student.  I grew up in Memphis, TN and was the only one of four siblings to complete 10th grade.  In high school, I had NO intention of going to college until the end of tenth grade when I found out about the Military Service Academies.  Finally having a goal in mind, I got my act together and was accepted to West Point where I majored in psychology and boxed for four years. 

Within 18 months of graduating, I got married, fathered a child, and was on a plane to Afghanistan as a combat engineer platoon leader leading missions to find and detonate IEDs.  My Army career continued successfully for eight years, and I completed a master’s degree in engineering management and coursework in mental health counseling before finding my passion to pursue medicine.

I know what it is like to come from a background of low expectations and to know deep down that I can and should do more.  I have learned how to stop placing limits on myself based on my own perceptions or influences around me.  I know how scary it can seem to abandon a stable path of success to pursue a dream while others depend on you.  And over the past two years in medical school, I have earned the gratification of confirming that every risk taken and all the work put in was fully worth it; medicine is equally challenging and rewarding, and I could not be happier with my decision.

Jabre

M1

My name is Jabre Millon. I’m currently an MS1 at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas School of Medicine. I graduated from USC in 2015. I ran track all four years of college on top of the traditional pre-med biology curriculum.

Unfortunately, life happens and as a result, it took a post-bacc and 3 application cycles for me to receive my first acceptance call! As a mentor, I look forward to providing you some guidance during your premed journey, a lot of which I lacked during my own journey.
