The highlight of my job is the experience we offer over 130 pre-med students during the summer, and the everlasting relationships I have with (Yale trained doctors) whom I helped in their journeys. I absolutely love my job, adore my supervisors, and feel privileged to be working in such a thriving, respectful environment. I am a genuinely good person, who enjoys helping others, learning, challenges, raising my daughter to be the best person she can be, and for her to go to YALE! I love, children, dogs, family, learning, dancing, singing in the shower, volleyball, and teaching my daughter Saniya……
