My name is Clarissa and I am a first year studying medical anthropology. I have always been fascinated by medicine and loved the idea of spending my life studying such an innovative and fast-growing academic field. The majority of my family works in medicine and I look up to them in every way imaginable.
I see myself as someone who loves the sciences, mostly due to its ability to affect so many lives. And primarily, I love meeting new people and listening to stories, especially those that vary so much from our day-to-day lives. I think that simply being an observer and studying cultures that vary from our own is so enlightening and brings more opportunities for growth and learning.
