"As our class's secretary, I try to keep our class as organized as I can.  Medical school is busy, and our ambitious class is always planning new events, so I enjoy the challenge of updating our calendar and maintaining communication among my classmates.  I am an Ambassador, VP of the Ethics Club, a member of the Financial Aid Advisory Committee, and an enthusiastic intramural volleyball teammate.  I am also a member of several interest groups: CMA, Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, OB/GYN, and Surgery.."
