In the spring of 2013, I joined a group of medical and business professionals to participate in a two-week medical mission that provides free reparative cleft lip and palate surgeries to impoverished children in the Philippines. As a prospective medical student, my responsibilities ranged from screening patients, assisting in the post-operation recovery room, and managing the ward. Although volunteers often worked long days, upwards of twelve-hour shifts, the impact of every procedure was truly life changing. By the end of our journey, sixty children were operated on, providing them with the confidence to attend school and someday seek employment that will better the lives of them and their families. In addition, we visited schools and orphanages to provide toothbrushes and demonstrations on how to properly maintain oral hygiene. As we left Enzo Elementary, the children began asking for signatures, unbeknownst to me, many of these children would later find me on Facebook, some of which I stay in contact with today.

Citadelle Laferrière, Haiti Panorama
Following the successful Haitian slave revolt in the 18th century, the Citadelle Laferrière was built to protect themselves from an expected French invasion. The mountaintop fortress has itself become an icon of Haiti, demonstrating the long-standing oppression that Haiti has faced for centuries.
