Describe a teachable med school moment: When life was particularly busy or stressful, I learned to incorporate my favorite things into my study routine. For example, I discovered how refreshing it was to study outdoors.

Name your favorite go-to meal: Pad Krapow (a spicy Thai basil chicken dish served over rice with a fried egg)

I'm excited about living in St. Louis because: I love living next to Forest Park! It is my favorite place to both exercise and relax, and I enjoy being able to stroll through the St. Louis Zoo on a whim.
