Roma Pegany is a rising third year at University of Georgetown School of Medicine.
As a rising third year medical student at Georgetown University School of Medicine, it is a blessing to be a part of Chi Alpha Christian Fellowship.
For the past two years, the relationships I have built with my colleagues have kept my spirit motivated and refreshed.
As a first generation college student and the first in my family to go to medical school, I was nervous about my new academic endeavor.
However, when I started attending Chi Alpha’s weekly on-campus fellowship meetings, I realized that this soon to be church family was God’s provision for my anxious spirit.
Often times, the increasing demands of medical student life are stressful and make it easy to devote less time to my walk with Christ.
However, overcoming these obstacles and challenges with peers who share both my faith and my burden helps me to keep Christ at the center of my journey.
I look forward to enriching these relationships as well as building news ones that are reflective of God’s unconditional love.
