Favorite Country I've traveled to and why: Turkey, I loved experiencing the fusion of cultures from Europe and Asia from a modern and historical perspective.
Why I'm interested in global health: I feel that it is important for a physician to be able to take the pulse of a community as well as a patient. I hope to one day become a physician, and through global health I can further understand the intersection of culture and medicine.
