Amina Ziad ’17, Harvard Medical School ’23


It is a privilege to be here in this white coat, at Harvard Medical School. At Wellesley, with the support of my professors, mentors, and peers, I built the foundation I needed to get where I am today. At Wellesley, I explored my passions, both in the sciences and humanities; I never had to choose. At Wellesley, through continued personal and professional growth, I became the person I am today. 

Wellesley is truly a unique environment. Take advantage of all it has to offer you. Reflect on your growth and welcome the discomfort that often comes with change. Seek a path that allows you to embody Non Ministrari sed Ministrare in a way that is most fulfilling for you.

And above all else, be true to yourself.
