My name is Larissa.
I’m a second-year med student on a quest to learn the art and science of healing at Stanford University. I enjoy reading a variety of books and writing poetry, learning about the molecular processes of life, and connecting with those around me. I also have fun making baked goods to share, although my love of novel challenges in the kitchen means I rarely make the same thing twice!
I hope that this blog will be a way to share inspiration with pre-meds who are wondering just what it’s like to be a student of medicine, with fellow classmates who might be vaguely curious about my musings, and with everyone who comes across it. Regardless of whether medicine is or isn’t your cup of tea, welcome!
Some of my posts will be drawn from my experiences within med school, others from my experiences outside of it, but all of them from my experiences as a human being sharing the road of life. The journey will be long, but through it all, I hope to become a spark of light in someone’s darkest day.
