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. This inspires me to serve and give back to those like them in the future.
I hope to become a physician that: cares for patients, conducts quality improvement research, and partners with under resourced settings to address healthcare disparities. With my cultural background, I also hope to assist and further develop healthcare in Cambodia’s disadvantaged populations.
In my spare time I enjoy rowing, running, hiking, cooking. I also enjoy the newest technologies, and how they can be beneficial for health and wellness.
