I joined StreetDoctors in 2014 and have loved every second. It is a wonderful feeling to be able to help to reduce the effects of youth violence in such a positive way. I’m so happy to be part of such a welcoming and accepting community that sees the promise in everyone, both young people and volunteers.

The work that StreetDoctors does to empower young people to view themselves as a valuable member of society, who could save a life, is one of the many reasons why joining was the best decision I have made at Medical School. I am endlessly proud of StreetDoctors, our impact, our emphasis on being yourself, our belief that no question is a “silly question” and the family that we have formed.
