In the midst of big life changes, upsetting world events, and few close friends physically around to process all these with, I’ve been very lonely.  The intensely competitive, openly self-serving, oblivious to the wider world aspects of academic science are soul-destroying when you don’t have kindred spirits close by.  Counting down the days until I get to see dear friends again- and kind of desperately hoping that medical school will offer more opportunities to meet others dedicated to amplifying voices of marginalized populations and advocating for structural change that broadens access to opportunity for all.
