Learned a valuable lesson this past week. I’ve unfortunately been off the gram and off the map for a minute due to unforeseen illness that put me on a short medical leave from school. It’s crazy how much you can miss in one short week but it also made me realize how hard I was pushing myself and hardly taking breaks. Although this couldn’t have come at a worse time (exams, competencies, finals and holiday preparations), it made me step back and realize how valuable self care is through this rigorous process. It also made me realize again how amazing my deans, professors, and classmates are for reaching out to offer guidance and help. Just a friendly reminder to take time and rest so you don’t burnout. Now, back to dental school life and playing catch up! So happy to be a Jumbo! 🐘

This, by far, was my most favorite ASDA NLC out of the three I have been to. Filled with amazing keynote speakers, breakout sessions, and networking opportunities, this conference empowers you to be the best version of yourself that you can be. Being my last NLC as a dental student, it was really bittersweet and it has reminded me how much I have grown as a person and leader during my four years at dental school. I’m so glad to be able to share this vlog of Chicago: NLC 2019 with y’all!
