Where is your favorite place to eat on the AVE? Why?

I love pho!!  Although I’m not exactly sure why I like eating pho so much.

Favorite TV show/movie/music?

House and Family Guy/ Action movies (big Jet Li fan)/ almost any kind of music

Where is your favorite place to study on campus?

Allen Library

Favorite food or ethnic cuisine?


What are you involved with on campus?

MAPS, Global Medical Brigades, Wrestling Club, Biology Department

If you could have dinner with two people (dead or alive) who would they be and why?

“Bruce Lee because of all the physical achievements he was able to push himself towards.  I would ask him how he was able to find the time to train himself.

Dr Michael E. DeBakey because of all the innovations he had towards cardiac surgery.  He pioneered many techniques and instruments throughout his lifetime.    He was an amazing doctor and a pretty influential person in the medical community.  ”

What is one thing you’re most proud of?

I’m probably most proud of my grades.

If you won the lottery, what would you do with the money?

Pay for Medical School!!!

Things I wish I knew my 1st year at UW

I wish I knew about all the resources that UW has to offer.  I didn’t know about all the clubs, study abroad opportunities, departmental scholarships and a wide array of other things.  I didn’t find out about a lot of things until it was already too late.
