Happy Monday and MLK Day, friends! I didn’t have work today so I started my day with a quick workout, then headed off to another open house. About an hour after I got home, I learned we got approved for the apartment I shared on my story a few days ago (our first choice!). For my non-Bay Area peeps, finding housing here is extremely difficult, so today was a big victory 😁 With that said, I definitely haven’t been preparing for my Peru trip (no idea where we’re staying or what we’ll be doing 😱) or interview like I should be.
For school interviews, I like to compile a list of previously asked questions, type out my responses and rehearse as much as possible. I thought it would be fun to prepare for my upcoming interview by picking 5 random questions to answer on here. If there is anything you’re itching to know, ask away!
I’ll kick this series off by telling you guys a little about myself! My name is Tammy and I’m a first-generation Vietnamese American/college grad. I was born in California but spent most of my life on the east coast (Virginia, Maryland, Florida, Pennsylvania and, most recently, New Jersey). I graduated USC with a major in biological sciences and minor in English. I spent my final semester of college in South Africa, where I got to help with an HIV study, scrub in/suture for the first time and go shark cage diving. After graduating I worked as a researcher/scribe for a few years before heading off to medical school. I quickly learned this was not the path I wanted to pursue, but hung on to the hope that my feelings would change. Realizing I was right all along, I ended up taking a leave of absence after my first year to pursue dentistry head-on and haven’t looked back since. In my spare time, you’ll find me working out, cooking, binging on Gilmore Girls or dabbling with graphic design/photography 😌
Feel free to introduce yourself below 😊 It’s been so much fun getting to know you all 💕
