Ife Akano-Williams

Secretary & Undergraduate Mentor

Year of Study: Year 4

Medical School: Newcastle University

Why I joined the MM Team: Being one out of 5 black medical students in a year of 300 has been difficult and so I know how hard it is to be a woman of colour in a predominantly white space. I want to give back and help other black students with applications, advice and anything that will help them achieve their dream of being a doctor

Interesting Fact: I used to write poetry and won a competition when I was younger
