Ariel Krahn (AZCOM 2026)
My name is Ariel and I am a first-year medical student at Midwestern. I’m originally from Minnesota and attended the University of Minnesota, graduating with my bachelors in Child Psychology in 2018. I worked as a medical scribe in the emergency department for 2.5 years and then as a clinical assistant at an ENT clinic for an additional 2 years before coming to AZCOM. I am married and just had my first child in December. When I’m not studying, I enjoy crocheting, reading, and playing video games. My biggest advice is to keep going! Your path through life may not be as linear as you expect. Be prepared to roll with the changes and you will still reach your goals.
