What was the last book you read? Currently reading Radical Candor by Sheryl Sandberg… but Chrissy Teigen’s Cravings cookbook is a staple in my apartment’s tiny kitchen
Where do you think you’d like to have a practice (if that’s what you want)? Either Rhode Island or Massachusetts and I plan to work at a FQHC for a few years out of school
What’s your favorite food? thin crust pizza
What’s your favorite ASDA event you’ve attended? This past District One Leadership Conference was awesome because we launched the first ever predental track. It was amazing to see the enthusiasm of predental students and spread ASDA fever!
What’s your favorite word? My favorite word is actually in Korean. 눈치 (pronounced nunchi) is the subtle art of understanding and being in tune with your surroundings and others’ feelings. I lived in South Korea for a year before dental school and it was fascinating to see how integral this concept of social intuition was in Korean culture.
