Meet the CPM Pre-Med of the Month

 

November 2017: Sukria Malique

 

Congratulations to the CPM November Pre-med of the Month, meet Sukria Malique!

Sukria is currently a sophomore Biological Sciences and University Honors major. Her commitment to academics is evident through the multiple merit based scholarships she has received during her short time at Wayne State. However, it has not always been easy for Sukria. At the age of sixteen years old she faced a major language barrier as an immigrant from Bangladesh. After overcoming this obstacle, she was inspired to help others who face a similar struggle. Sukria discovered her passion for medicine while working as an interpreter in a Detroit clinic.

Currently, Sukria is the Founder and President of Nourish Detroiters, an organization that provides students with access to healthy food options in order to alleviate health disparities and relieve hunger. In addition to helping Wayne State students, she volunteers at Gleaners Community Food Bank to contribute her efforts in improving health and access to nutrition throughout communities in and around Detroit. Sukria references the opportunities and resources available at Wayne State as a source of her success. Specifically, pre-med workshops, advising, and academic support assist her in her goal of ultimately becoming a physician.
