Vegan Yogini and Aspiring Doctor

My name is Morgan Barnett and I, too, am a Human Biology major.  I am going to be a sophomore this fall and an RA in Holmes Hall (I am in Lyman Briggs like many of my residents will be).  I have declared my major as pre-med, and plan on attending Michigan State’s college of Osteopathic Medicine upon my graduation.  I have no prior experience with medical anthropology, and that is why I decided to take this class.  I am extremely interested in the cultural adaption aspect to different medicinal practices, and hope that this course enhances my understanding of the perspectives toward medicine in general.

This summer I have been practicing yoga and meditation daily.  My summer ritual involves practicing yoga and working at a farm to table restaurant in White Lake, MI (The Root Restaurant and Bar).  I eat a plant-based diet (vegan), which some people find interesting and some people don’t.  I also love music and acting.  I play the clarinet, and last year I had the opportunity to play in the school of Music’s concert band.  I am also a singer.  The first picture I posted was of “the quartet” in the Wizard of Oz when I played the role of Dorothy Gale.  The second is from before I saw Wicked (for the fourth time) in London last summer.  The third picture of me with a green-smoothie in hand was also taken in London, and the fourth is from my vacation up north (taken yesterday from Mackinac Island)!

    Hey Morgan, my name is jaana! First of all I noticed that you work in White Lake, my boyfriend lives there so I’m in the area a lot! I’ve never heard of the restaurant you work out but it sounds really interesting, where’s it at? A lot of my friends have recently been trying plant-based diets and let me just say I give you props for having that self control hahah, it sounds great! Also super jealous you’ve seen Wicked 4 times, I have yet to make it to one.
