Hello everyone, my name is Sophia Perrelli. I am a sophomore at MSU studying human biology. I am from East Lansing, Michigan, so I have always lived super close to campus and felt comfortable here. Outside of classes, I enjoy staying active and playing soccer. A fun fact about me is that I just became a Zumba dance instructor. I will be instructing classes in the fall at IM facilities to keep myself sane after classes and extra-curriculars. Another fun fact, which you could probably tell from my name, is that I am 75% Italian and I frequently visit Italy to see my relatives. One thing I hope to learn about in this class is the history of women’s involvement in medicine so that I can predict how the future might stick to or defy these norms, which may determine whether or not I go into the medical field as a woman.
