Fall Convocation 2021: Graduate

Dheeksha Reddy

Degree: Experimental Surgery
Hometown: Ottawa and Iqaluit

What I loved most about studying at McGill’s Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences: The support and the wide range of opportunities that we get to explore. The courses provide a platform for us to create, develop and grow. It makes sure we think out of the box and come up with the best outcomes possible.

A wonderful memory I’ll never forget: I never felt so happy, satisfied and confident about myself as much as I felt here. I can express myself with no hesitation. I am honestly sad that I am completing my education and will be graduating but if I get a chance to stay back I definitely will.

And a few shout outs… Favourite professor: Dr. Fackson Mwale – the guiding light. Never did anyone guide and support me as much as he did. Micha Huynh: my greatest supporter and always there for her students. Sharon Tuner: if I have any trouble, I reach out to her. And finally, my supervisors – Elif Bilgic (project supervisor) and Laura Epure – (internship supervisor).

What’s next? Hopefully medicine and giving back to my community. If not, I definitely would continue my education within the faculty (PhD). I know I am in the right hands!
