What motivates you to do/pursue science and/or medicine?
What does Black History Month mean to you?
To me, Black History Month means reflecting on the true, rich, and unedited stories of the Black experience over the years. It’s a celebration that also makes room to address inequities, corruption, and threats to Black life worldwide. For open hearts, it can be a time of learning, unlearning, and restrategizing for the sake of progress and growth. Year after year, there is more Black history to honor and uplift and I am also reminded of the history standing next to me—my family, friends, and community, whose paths will be remembered and inspire not only future generations but also me.
