samira gholamiCSBS Student Spotlight: Samira Gholami

My name is Samira Gholami and I am third year pre-medical student studying Health, Society, and Policy with a minor in Nutrition. I was awarded the FLAS scholarship for the 17-18 academic year in Persian and let me just say, this experience has been بسیار خوب. I grew up learning both Persian (Farsi) and English at the same time, which resulted in a hybrid language our family has aptly termed "Finglish" (Farsi-English).

The FLAS scholarship has accented my interest in pursuing medicine wonderfully because it has allowed me to take language classes that will benefit me on my journey to becoming a translator for Persian speaking patients both at the Maliheh Free Clinic and ultimately, through my work as a physician in order to better connect with patients. #bethesolution
