Future career aspirations: I aspire to become a physician that addresses the unequal treatment of refugees and immigrants in health care and education – both of which were lacking in my Afghan immigrant experience.
Top 3 goals for your time abroad: 1. At Yonsei University there is a program called “Severance Hospital Volunteer Work,” where students volunteer at a local hospital and shadow doctors. I plan to volunteer here and gain a new perspective about their healthcare compared to America’s and how they are dealing with cultural competency.
2. I signed up for a fashion design course at Yonsei University and I plan to learn more about fashion from South Korea’s perspective.
3. I signed up for a music course at Yonsei University to help me learn more about how music differs in South Korea and how it might help me improve my knowledge of music.
