Hey everyone! If we haven't met before, I'm Cassidy. I'm a fourth year at UCSD studying Physio/Neuro with a Global Health minor. I love being a part of Flying Sams because it has taught me so much about the rewards and challenges of both healthcare and non-profit work. I have learned a lot about myself in the process, and I'm so thankful for the friends I've made and amazing people I've met in this organization. Outside of school, my hobbies are hiking, cooking, and playing the guitar. If you ever see me at a Flying Sams event, let's get to know each other!
A Molecular Biology and Biological Anthropology major, Jennifer loves meeting new members through Flying Sams, researching edible and medicinal plants for the Community Garden project, and picking up new hobbies. You can find her either typing away furiously on a laptop on campus, knitting, baking bread, or trying to save her aloe plant.
