I am so humbled to report that I have been elected as National President- Elect of the Student National Medical Association for the upcoming year! It is truly an honor, a joy, and a privilege to be able to work for and to be leading this organization in the next year. I am in a position where I can learn so much about not only where we’ve come from but where it is that we need to go and how I can help us get there. It’s been a very long journey and looking back on the last 6, almost 7 years, this hasn’t always been easy. I’ve definitely enjoyed the entire ride. I also was chosen for my research fellowship! God has truly blessed me!
As I sit here, still trying to take in the events of the night, I would be remiss if I didn’t thank everyone who has helped me and taught me along the way. Each and every position that I have held in the SNMA has assisted me in getting to where I am now. I have definitely enjoyed meeting all of the members and leaders that have come in contact with this year. SNMA truly is a family and I’m just been so humbled at the love and support that I’ve gotten from everyone.
I’m getting calls about celebrating so I’m going to go celebrate and enjoy myself. Its our last night so there is a social gathering that they’re holding here at the hotel for everyone. The last hurrah before we all go back to study and count down the days until our next AMEC. I have an endocrine exam in 48 hours that I haven’t started studying for. No stress, I’ll handle that later, tonight, I’m going to go have some fun!
