Hello Class of 2023! I am a little late to the introductions here. First of all congratulations on your acceptances to HUCM!! My name is Belita Opene and I am one of your Freshman Liaison's for Housing and International Students. I am currently a rising MS2 at Howard, born and raised in Nigeria. I attended University of Maryland, Baltimore County for undergrad and Adelphi University for grad school. Also, worked a few years doing microbiology clinicial research. I really enjoy traveling and seeing new places.
We are very excited for you to join the Howard family and I know for some it hasn't been an easy road getting into medical school but you are here now and I am sure it must be very exciting! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions and make sure you are living your best life this summer!!
