I’m currently a medical student at Georgetown University.
I was born and raised in Long Beach, California. My parents are Cambodian refugees that survived the Khmer Rouge genocide in the 1970’s. While they came to the United States with very little, their journey is rich in triumph and perseverance. This inspires me to serve and give back to them and those like them in the future.
Connecting the dots of where I’ve been before, I hope to become a physician that cares for patients, conducts research, and shapes policies that improve the overall experience for patients and providers. With my cultural background, I also hope to assist and further develop healthcare in Cambodia.
In my spare time I enjoy rowing, running, cooking Korean, Southeast Asian, Cajun, and Italian dishes. I also enjoy the newest technologies, and how they can be beneficial for health and wellness.
