Why rugby? How long have you been playing?
It's a killer way to let out aggression and challenge yourself. I also think it's the ultimate team sport. I've been playing since high school.
Favorite place in Ann Arbor?
Comet Coffee. It's a small coffee shop hidden away in the Nickel's Arcade. The coffee is beyond good and it's just a great place to escape for a bit.
In 5 years, what do you see yourself doing?
In 5 years I hope to be in medical school, pursuing a MD/MPH dual degree program and working towards a career as a primary care pediatrician.
Graham crackers. I could eat an entire box, easy!
Best class you've taken at Michigan so far?
Public Health 300 with Dr. Strecher. Hands down the most inspiring and down to earth professor at Michigan. The class will teach you about yourself and gives you an opportunity to learn about social/behavioral/environmental factors that influence health. Everyone should take it!!
If you were an ice cream flavor what would you be?
Dark chocolate with cherries and a swirl of Nutella.
