Yutika is our Region 8 Director. She currently a student at The University of Texas at Austin, majoring in psychology and aspires to be an OBGYN. In addition to being a regional director, she is a part of PATH- Physicians Against Trafficking of Humans. "I have incorporated PATH into my AMWA chapter and I'm starting a clothing drive that will continue throughout the year along with going to hospitals/clinics to discuss the importance of PATH training." Yutika joined AMWA last January in hopes of meeting other women in medicine who have similar motivations to become a physician. "Ever since I've joined AMWA, my decision to become a physician has become even more solidified as I see so many successful and incredible women that have accomplished so much and done so much to contribute to the well-being of other women and individuals."
When asked for advice she would give to younger women, she replied "Being a pre-medical student is extremely tough at times and can often make you question whether it's worth it to even become a physician, but it's important to remember why you want to join the medical field. Join organizations like AMWA where you see other individuals just like yourself working just as hard to achieve similar goals. It will continue to motivate you. "
We are lucky to have Yutika on our Regional Director Team!
