About Me

Southern Peach 

B.A recipient 
M.S recipient 
Pre-Medical school Student 
Over the 20something hump ;-) 

Who I am:
I am a non-traditional “PreMed” Medical School student , I am applying to medical school (re-applicant)
I am in my mid twenties, I was born and raised in the southeastern region of the US (Georgia), I have a B.A in Psychology and M.S degree as well, I have grade school aged child. And, I am not currently enrolled in academic course work as a first year Med student.

Why did I choose to blog:
I began writing creatively after finding myself engulfed in a poetry assignment I received from my 5th grade gifted teacher. And, at times I have found that poetry has provided me with the opportunity to express myself more effectively than through spoken language. I believe writing this blog will provide the same comfort. Additionally, I randomly stumbled across a few blog sites of medical students (Aspiring MinorityDoctor and Mrs. Mommy MD) this year that gave me so much life and provided me with such inspiration. Seeing them live out their dreams supplied me with additional motivation that I too one day will get to do the same!

Where am I today (when began blogging):
I am in the midst of the 2014-2015 application cycle. I submitted my primary application this summer and recently reunited with my dear friend Mr. MCAT! And I am in the process of waiting for interviews, completing newly received secondaries, and waiting to receive my scores (which should be within the next week or two :-) so that I can receive additional secondaries. Outside of the ever exciting and exhilarating application process, I am working and pursing additional shadowing and other medically relevant activities.


  1. I am in similar shoes and I recently started blogging for therapeutic reasons. I have filled out secondaries up to the wazoo ...lol, I too am waiting for interviews. oye vay. I wish you success and looking forward to following your story.
