Chicago, Illinois, United States
My name is Amir Zakhary and I am a first year medical student. I graduated from Saint Louis University in 2017. I majored in biology & french. After college I went to Egypt before entering medical school.
I am interested in medicine because I love seeing the gratefulness and relief that people get on their faces, knowing they will be okay or conversely being an advocate for people during a difficult time.
I am in love with volunteering. I love working with nurses and care partners to put a smile on people's faces!
I am involved with touring students and volunteering in medical school. I will soon get involved with cancer research.
Additionally, I am very involved with my Coptic Church and love serving as an altar server, chanter, or Sunday School teacher anytime I can.
