Hi! Welcome to This Life of Mine, a space for my thoughts on fun, fitness, food, fashion, and life as a twenty-something medical student in New York City.
My name is Julia, and I’m a second year medical student at NYU in Manhattan. Born and raised in Rochester, New York, I attended the University of Pennsylvania as a Biology major, with a focus on Biological Basis of Behavior (a mix of biology, psychology, and neuroscience) and French. After graduation, I researched at Penn for an additional year before moving the New York City to begin medical school. Join me as I move through my second year of medical school, full of adventures in the city with my friends, boyfriend Prateesh, and sister Mariel. Thanks for visiting–I hope you’ll stay a while!
