I wanted to officially start the series by dedicating an episode on a very important topic that we often overlook in our daily lives: seeking mental health services. In the second episode, my friend, Jessica Hao, a medical student at Washington University at St. Louis, and I discuss the importance of seeking help when needed and what we can do to combat against the cultural stigma of mental health.
Jessica Hao was born in Beijing, China and immigrated to Canada at age 6. After a whirlwind of adventures brought her back to Shanghai, China for her high school years, she went on to study psychology and linguistics at Princeton University, where a dashing Asian-American boy wooed her into marrying him and staying in the US. Her hobbies include open water swimming, triathlons, eating food to fuel the prior two things, and raising her two adorable puppies. She is now pursuing an MD and MPHS at Washington University in St. Louis and is hoping to go into a career in primary care medicine.
