Most of our volunteers spend many months preparing themselves for their service trip abroad. When 2-time alumna Trang Tran arrived in Peru to find her luggage was still in Florida, those plans quickly changed. Luckily, she was traveling with the FIMRC Family, and she packed her optimism and flexibility in a carry-on!
"I am so honored to write this blog post and share with you all the impact FIMRC had on me becoming a pediatrician!" Tina Tarazi began her career path to becoming a physician as a FIMRC Chapter member and Global Health Volunteer. The lessons she learned through her involvement with FIMRC have played an important role throughout her journey in medicine.
Gurleen Samra, a Biological Sciences student at UC Irvine, weighs in on her experience with FIMRC. As an active chapter member, she regularly participates in local volunteer work. This September she embarked with fellow chapter members to serve in Costa Rica through our Global Health Volunteer Program. She's now sharing her experiences, photos, and take-aways from Project Alajuelita.
