Meet Huda Warsame, a member of the Class of 2025 who achieves balance through creating art, a hobby she made sure to continue when entering the fast-paced world of medical school. She wanted to attend Wayne State because of the student body’s ability to make a direct impact on the Detroit community.
Question: Why did you choose Wayne State University for medical school?
Answer: I admire the school’s connection to the community via community engagement and service learning. There is an interplay of recognizing how much our student body can aid the area, but also how much they can learn from the area as well. Detroit is a great city with a diverse population, and I felt as though I can learn from the community within the city, which is why I appreciated how intertwined the school is within the community. My goal in health is to advocate for all my patients, especially ones from a marginalized background who feel like there is a barrier between themselves and their health. I believe the education I have obtained/could obtain from Wayne State and the greater metropolitan Detroit area will get me there.
Q: What do you do to support your health and wellness?
A: I think a part of keeping well in medical school is having and keeping up with your hobbies. I try to continue with my painting and digital art since being in school. I find it as a good way to unwind and to also work the more creative/artistic side of my brain.
Q: What is your favorite part of the Warrior M.D. community?
A: My favorite part of the Warrior M.D. community is how collaborative and helpful it is. My peers continuously advocate for one another and aid each other in and outside of the classroom. I rarely feel as though I’m in competition with them. Rather, we are a team working to become, and make each other, better physicians.
