I would like to commit myself to the understanding and illumination of the human brain, psychopathology, and their neurological interactions with memory, music, moral psychology, and emerging technologies. As a third culture kid (Danish parents, born in America, lived most of life in Singapore), my life has been a colour spectrum of experiences and perspectives. The more I learn about other people and places, the more I become interested in how their environments and their minds work together to create their individual person, and how that personality interacts and connects with the world's intrinsic and extrinsic motivators.
There are some days where I think I'm going to die from an overdose of satisfaction
Die of nothing but a rage to live
Research & VOLUNTEER Experience
California Hospital Medical Center
Research Assistant 2017 - Present
As a COPE Health Scholar, I spend a minimum of 8 hours a week volunteering at California Hospital Medical Center, assisting nurses and doctors with tasks within my scope of practice, while simultaneously helping to improve patient wellbeing and experience while in hospital. I have rotated between several departments, including labour and delivery, pediatrics, general medicine, couplet care, antepartum, and the emergency department.
Having spent the majority of my time in the couplet care and labour and delivery departments, I’ve gleaned valuable knowledge about effectively and thoughtfully caring for mothers in labour, mothers in postpartum recovery, and newborns. I am currently working on a research proposal aiming to decrease incidence of mother-child separation due to maternal substance abuse, by providing high-risk, expectant mothers with a broader spectrum of info on the fetal and legal repercussions of substance abuse during pregnancy.
Thus far I have devoted over 360 hours of my time to the patients at CHMC.
