Your goal as an EMRA leader: As part of EMRA MSC, I aim to promote and facilitate connections among emergency medicine (EM) residents and medical students passionate about pursuing a career in this field. Additionally, I desire to create open channels of guidance for underrepresented minority and non-traditional students who may require additional support to reach their goals as future EM physicians. Overall, I want to motivate medical students to ultimately take advantage of all the great resources EMRA and ACEP have to offer to fortify their medical school education and future in EM.

Top 3 traits of a great leader:
1) Empathetic
2) Confident
3) Supportive but driven

Last non-textbook I read: "The Kite Runner" by Khaled Hosseini
