How did your mentor(s) encourage and foster your research and academic trajectory?

My mentor, Dr. Lyndsay Rhodes believed in me when I did not believe in myself. She pushes me every day to strengthen my leadership, research, and academic abilities. Through her and the opportunities I have been provided, I found my passion for pursuing a career as a physician in surgical oncology. It has been an honor to work under her and learn so much about myself. I have her to thank for the person I am today.

What does the OCF mean to you?

The OCF means growing and learning more about yourself and applying that to your applications.
