Hi there! I'm Naveen, and I'm an MD candidate applying to Internal Medicine/Psychiatry. I have trouble calling any one place at home since I was born in Croydon, UK, and then I moved around to Houston/Dallas, Tx, and Providence, RI. I discovered my passion for serving the underserved in medicine after my time as an undergraduate where I worked with the Rhode Island Urban Debate League and Rhode Island Free Clinic. I was fortunate enough to meet wonderful people who taught me about the varying experiences and backgrounds, and I'd like to hope I've continued to utilize those experiences as a medical student where I've been fortunate to bring Hepatitis C screening and care to homeless individuals as well as study the impact of self-image and agency in diabetes self-care. In my free time, I love to play chess, to play tennis, to find new videogames, to explore the food scene, and to cook. This following year, I'm looking forward to exploring the nation as travel will no doubt be a big part of interviews, and I'm hoping to continue learning from the people, peers, community members, mentors, and patients around me. I'm also looking forward to more self-reflection as I look back at my journey here.
