Hey! I’m Mary Ella. Welcome to my blog, Mod Med. Here you will find musings of a medical student, writing to wrap my brain around life. I started this blog to document my journey through medical school and make the path to becoming a doctor a little less intimidating. You don’t have to be brilliant to be a doctor; you just have to work hard and care. My hopes are that this blog will inspire people to figure out why they are here and make a difference in the world.
By sharing my experiences, I hope to contribute to the ever-growing book of stories that this world has cultivated. Another one of my passions is traveling. Life is too short to pass up opportunities to learn more about this planet and the people that shape it; past, present and future. I want to seek out untold stories and retell old ones from my own personal perspective. I am also using this blog to promote sustainability both in travel (supporting local economies) and global health (increasing access to healthcare long term).
One more thing: HUGE wine enthusiast here! Learning about wine from all around the world is one of my favorites things because wine is an integral part of so many cultures. It also has a lot of health benefits! Some of my happiest moments are sitting outside with a glass of wine and having a great conversation. I want more people to have these blissful moments and travel around the world with just a wine glass. So here I write– to make becoming a doctor, traveling the world, making a difference and enjoying wine a little less intimidating. I hope you enjoy!
