MY WHITE COAT MEANS SERVICE
Service to my community. Service to my country. As a member of the DC community since 2010, I have strived to give back to those that live in this city. As an undergrad and SMP at Georgetown I worked with residents of Anacostia and other disadvantaged neighborhoods. As a medical student and future physician, I will continue to serve. Beyond the local community, I will proudly serve my country as a Second Lieutenant in the US Army - a country that has given me so many opportunities and allowed me, the son of immigrants, to earn this coat. Everyday I wear it I am reminded of the opportunities I have been so fortunate to have.
