I immigrated to the US from China when I was a little girl, and it was like stepping into a completely different world. The food, the language, the people…the contrast between rural China and my suburban home was black and white. Growing up in Ohio, I had hobbies like any other kid – playing piano, painting, and hanging out with friends. But part of me never left Jiangsu Province. The diversity that exists on our planet is truly amazing. Although I have helped out in many ways in my own community through volunteering and research, I want to be able to give back to the globally underserved population. This desire is what prompted me to pursue medicine, and is what continues to ignite my passion.
