other stuff besides academics...

Extracurricular activities? What else do I do besides going to and from class, studying, eating, and talking to friends and family?
Im in several clubs at UCB one of which is AMSA (American Medical Student Association). I have been in AMSA for 3 years now and has been Issues Chair for 2 years. Being Issues Chair is pretty fun except it requires a loooooot of work! I prepare for AMSA's annual Health Career Fair by inviting guests of different professions in the health field (ie, doctors, podiatrist, dentists, vets, optometrists, researcher, etc, etc). I also try to dig up current issues people are interested in and have a event/meeting where i invite a guest speaker to discuss about that issue.
Besides AMSA, Im also in the wonderful CNR PAL program where i get to learn a whole lot more than i already know about CNR! It has been a really great experience and i really enjoy working with the people in it =)
I dont know if calling "research" extracurricular but i have been doing research for Dr. Nancy Amy for while. Unfortunately we didnt get to work on a particular special project but im hoping that i will be able to next year =)
but yeah, i may have a few more extracurricular activities i do up my sleeve, if you want to know more about anything, just talk to me =D
