My name is Kate Eunah Lee, and I’d describe myself as someone who loves people and is energetic about life.
I am a second year medical student in New York. I hope to get involved in medical research and teaching in addition to practicing medicine. As for what specialty I’ll go into, I am yet unsure – I like everything so far, and I think I need to get deeper experience in different specialties to really figure out what I want to do long-term.
Before medical school, I attended Harvard, majoring in History of Science and minoring in Health Policy. During college, I spent roughly half of my time running clubs – I resuscitated a faltering student club into a robust one as Editor-in-Chief of Harvard Health Policy Review and won a ‘most active chapter’ award from the national Team HBV organization as Co-President of Team HBV at Harvard. I danced and choreographed for Asian-American Dance Troupe. LinkedIn [link].
I am fluent in Korean and English, and am trying to recover a buried six years of Spanish class knowledge.
Speaking of recovering things, I realize that the medical path can be daunting and consuming, and I wish to create an outlet for creative hobbies. This is where this website comes in. I want to keep my hobbies – flute, swimming, analyzing literature, writing, … – alive, and although some of these are more amenable to blogging than others, a blog seems like a fun way to motivate myself and share tidbits of my life with you.
During my busier times, of course my schoolwork will trump my posting (does not mean I’m not doing my hobbies, just not posting!) In that meantime, add me on Instagram @eunahtunaroll or @beautyeditbykate to keep in touch.
If I post any opinions that have anything to do with medicine, please note that none of this reflects the views of any of the schools I attended/currently attend. I am a first-year medical student and therefore you should not look here for medical advice – please see your own doctor!
