Through my current studies in Public Health as an undergrad at UC Berkeley, alongside my work in the field of reproductive justice, I have cemented a firm commitment to maternal and infant health care and support, both globally and locally. I intend to pursue this passion by attending medical school and becoming a board-certified OB/GYN, and someday opening my own birthing center. In the meantime, I am working/volunteering as a doula to gain as much exposure as possible to birth work, a field that I was originally drawn to after experiencing on many occasions the intimate connection fostered between women across backgrounds, languages, and cultures, centering back on the shared female and maternal experience. This has inspired me to give back to women the power to have the birth experience that they deserve.
