Congratulations to the November Pre-Med of the Month: Isidora Sekaric

Isidora is a student, majoring in Chemistry and minoring in Biological Sciences.  Isidora is very active within Wayne State and her community, as a member of the WSU Swim and Dive team. She is also the social media manager of WSU Elevate Women and help the Common Threads organization crochet plastic bags at Wayne State's Medical School. Her love for chemistry has led her to conduct research under Dr. Rabuffetti in the WSU Chemistry building where "I work with inorganic compounds and their luminescence". Additionally through Wayne State, she works as a summer orientation leader, where she gets to welcome new students to Wayne State. Outside of school, she also volunteers at the Michigan Humane society, where she helps walk and provide care to the animals. When asked about why she would like to go to medical school, Isidora was quoted: "I have always been interested in science and learning how the human body functions. This is what made a chemistry major and biology minor the perfect fit for me in my undergraduate career. I want to use my knowledge to help people and make an impact in as many lives as possible."

I believe I would have made a very good engineer since I have always been quite strong in math.

-If you didn't have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time?

If I did not have to sleep, I would use the spare time to watch anime, since I do not get to with my busy day schedule.

-Where is the most interesting place you have ever been?

So far, the most interesting place I have ever been is Taiwan. It is so unique and different from everywhere else I have traveled.
