“As a double minority at a majority institution, SNDA has been a safe haven and one of the few organizations in my school where I felt I “belonged”. SNDA has allowed me to be myself and thrive as both a student and leader. Through my participation in SNDA on both a local and national level, I have made lifelong friendships, gained mentors, and developed professionally in more ways than I ever could have imagined. I am amazed at how one organization can so effortlessly unite dental students and young dentists from all across the nation.”
