Medical School: Temple
Born in England, Ntiense came to the United States at an early age with her parents who are originally from Nigeria. She moved around as a child, but primarily grew up in New York and Pennsylvania. She attended the University of North Carolina for college where she graduated with a degree in Global Studies and was also a Phillips Ambassador in 2015. She has been an outstanding medical student at Temple University where she was inducted into the AOA Honor Society. Ntiense is deeply connected to languages and the international community – and currently speaks Ibibio, Spanish, and Korean. Her experiences have led her to develop an interest in global health and policy and envisions a career involving the World Health Organization. She has also worked to co-found “Medicine for the Culture”, an informative health blog on Instagram focused on promoting health and disease prevention education to Black communities and has been actively engaged with SNMA through all four years. In her free time, she enjoys cooking Nigerian and other ethnic cuisines, baking, running, traveling internationally, and going to Disney World!
