My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A few things about me:
I was born in Ghana, but grew up in France, Egypt, Netherlands and the US. Coming from that background, I've grown to love traveling and experiencing different cultures, languages and perspectives. Currently I'm in medical school and plan to specialize in neurosurgical-oncology; I found my calling in cancer research and really want to provide care to patients afflicted with brain tumors.
I'm calm and easy going but also intense when I need to be. I thrive on intellectual discourse and can enjoy a great philosophical discussion over coffee as much as a night drinking and dancing at the club. In my spare time I like to hangout, read, write, lift weights, and practice my piano playing.

I'm hoping to meet someone who's open-minded, smart, ambitious and doesn't mind listening to the occasional Star Wars joke or voice impression :).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently in my 5th year of MD and PhD studies at WashU. Will be finishing my PhD in the fall and will move on to the last 2 years of medschool. I'm interested in specializing in neurosurgery with the intention of doing brain cancer research and treating patients afflicted with brain tumors.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

Interacting with people of different cultures
Figuring out computers - I like to build them

Some people tell me I'm good at the piano, but as my own worst critic I'll say I'm not that great
