Michelle Chirimuuta

Community Outreach Coordinator & Gap Year/Undergraduate Mentor

Year of Study: Year 3

Medical School: Cardiff University

Why I joined the MM Team: I feel that having taken a gap year before starting medical school, that matured me and prepared me for what was to come. I think that I will be able to work well in mentoring of students looking to apply to medical school as I’ve had to go through the process twice. I particularly enjoy sharing ideas on mentoring as well as outreach to the community. Particularly black communities where certain health topics should be addressed and awareness could be brought.

Interesting Fact: I started a baking business in my gap year.
