As FGLI students, we often find ourselves living in at least two communities which may be quite different - our home or familial communities, and the community within our educational institutions. How did/does your background shape who you are, and the physician you hope to become?
Describe a time when your background empowered you to have a unique perspective or insight. How has mentorship played a role in your empowerment? How might you use this perspective in your work as an aspiring medical student or physician?
What role has advocacy, for yourself or others, played in your life? How can you bring an idea, value, or concept from your family or community culture to the world of medicine?
