Meet Derissa

I am a medical student at the American University of Antigua (AUA), College of Medicine pursuing the degree of Doctor of Medicine (M.D.). I plan to specialize in either Pediatrics, Family Medicine or Gynecology and Obstetrics (OB/GYN). I was born and raised in Europe in the Republic of Austria, where I learned to speak fluent German with native speaker proficiency however English is my mother tongue. I first learned to speak German in Kindergarten and have pursued academic courses in the language through elementary, middle and high school. I took German as my second major at college where I graduated with a Bachelors degree (Drew University) with double majors in Biology and German. I am a citizen of the United Kingdom with authorization to seek employment in all 27 Member States of the European Union (EU) under the freedom of movement provisions of the EU Treaty. I am also a Read more national of the State of Saint Lucia as well as of the Republic of Trinidad & Tobago. Now a little more about my love for caring for children. For as long as I can remember I loved taking care of children. I find them a great joy to be around and often times more wise than even adults at times. I see them as our future therefore I take pride in being a mentor by setting a good example for them. My previous Job entailed me taking children to and from school, ensuring they finished their homework. I also took them to their after school activities depending on the day. This required a great amount of organization as well as patience, two areas that have afforded me well in my career as a medical Student. I am currently looking for something short term for the summer months.
