Changing the Face of Medicine

Welcome to my blog! I have to admit that this is my first time ever blogging, but after recently being admitted to medical school, I thought it would be nice to document my journey through medicine. After searching for blogs that I could relate to, I realized there aren't many written by women such as myself. I am a 26-year-old African-American single mother who graduated from college in 2009. As of this past Friday, I now have a Master of Science degree in Biochemistry, and I'll be entering into an osteopathic medical school in August 2014 (was accepted last month!!!!). I wanted to start a blog that would encourage other young, minority females considering medicine to not be afraid to go after their dreams, and I also wanted to have a blog that recognized minority women in medicine. I'm not sure about the exact direction that this blog will go, but if I can inspire and encourage others then it will be a success. I guess you can say that I'll be changing the face of medicine, one post at a time ;-)


  1. Thank you for this blog. You and I have so much in common I was wondering if I could contact you? Would love to speak with you about your amazing journey.
