Board of Directors
Program Director 2018-2019
Former YPI Leader
Emory University School of Medicine Class of 2018
While teaching 12th graders in Ramallah before medical school, I saw how difficult it was for my students to access reliable information about applying to college in the US. I wanted to get involved with YPI to help enthusiastic students get an early exposure to the application process, as well as help introduce them to all of the amazing opportunities available in medicine.
