Chinma 2013

Chinma is a third year Biomedical Sciences student who wants to practice medicine in developing countries. When not studying, she enjoys reading, traveling, and trying new hobbies; she is currently looking for a way to attend clown school for a summer without the year-long circus commitment afterwards.

"I knew I wanted to be a doctor since fourth grade," Chinma said. "but it wasn't until my recent travels with Global Medical Brigades that I realized my passion for serving in developing countries."

Chinma's school survival tip: "Problems are rarely as unsolvable as they initially appear. So just sit back, relax, and take a few deep breaths. But most importantly, just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
