Future Physician Assistant Fariha Khan knows the impact that a smile or word of encouragement can have on a patient. As a volunteer at the Blood Centers of the Pacific and the Mills-Peninsula Medical Center, Fariha spent time connecting with each patient, witnessing the truly transformative effect that kindness could have on those in pain. Currently Fariha is working toward an Associate degree in biology at Skyline College, with the goal of transferring to the University of California for her Bachelor’s degree. Fariha is invested in deeply understanding the medical field—she plans on participating in lab research and gaining experience as a Certified Nursing Assistant before heading to graduate school. Her dedication to becoming a skilled, well-rounded practitioner and scholar will benefit the field as a whole as well as Fariha’s future patients.
