Area of Interest in Neurology: Currently interested in stroke but open to all other fields in neurology.

Hobbies: I absolutely love traveling, its the best way to experience culture, food and life! One of my favorite things about traveling is going to markets and trying local fruits. I love listening to all types of music and dancing.

Why I Chose UNC: UNC was the best fit for me. It wasn’t about the things it had to offer (which are great and a lot), but how I felt during the interview. Everyone and everything just felt perfect. The program is fantastic and the location is absolutely wonderful with the beaches and mountains so near! I’m so glad I get to spend the next four years of my life training and helping people here.
