SACNAS provided me with a community full of wonderful people that shared challenges similar to mine as a minority in science. Through this SACNAS community, I found many mentors who have helped me succeed in finding a place myself in science, and they have inspired me to do the same for others as I advance in my career toward an MD-PhD.
