Katrina Wachter! Katrina is a 24yo third year medical student, a musician, a second Lieutenant in the US Army, and a Christian. I’ve known her since the very first days of med school as she is my peer pair partner for the SELECT program. She’s an outstanding example of a human and I am so glad to finally bring her to you. During this conversation, we discuss the value of deep breathing and journaling, her encounters with death, and her desires for a family.
I hope you enjoy! 😀
a ball of anxiety wrapped up in good intentions,
and someone who sometimes cares too much.
Before Katrina dies, she wants…
to be married,
and to feel fulfilled in whatever she does.
When Katrina dies, she wants…
to be old,
and to die peacefully around loved ones.
After Katrina dies, she wants…
to be with those that passed before her in the Glory of God.
In conclusion, she says…
“Don’t be afraid to ask questions. About anything: about your faith, about how something works, about life in general, about the future.
Don’t be afraid to ask those questions because you’re never going to learn something unless you put yourself through it. And the best way to do that is through questions.”
