I was born in Port of Spain, Trinidad where I grew up. Later in my childhood I moved to Jamaica, Queens, New York. Upon graduating high school, I attended William E. Macaulay Honors College where I triple-majored in biology, psychology, and interdisciplinary studies with a double-minor in physical and cultural anthropology. When I was a child my mother carried me with her on night shifts. She was a social worker in various homeless shelters. These were my first experiences with medicine and public health. I witnessed the effects of mental illness, drug abuse, and limited access to healthcare. In addition to belonging to the Black, Latino, and Caribbean communities I am also a member of the LGBT community. My upbringing has shown me that there are US regions with urgent need for healthcare. I have decided to pursue medicine and be the voice of change that I wish to see. I intend to serve the underserved communities that made me who I am. Serving as the LMSA LGBT representative is one of the many ways in which I am working towards change.
