Shira Dworkin

Hi, I'm Shira and I am in my third year of medicine at UCL, intercalating in immunology. Before I started medical school I did a year in Israel at Sem at Nishmat and I've been back since to volunteer on the Magen David Adom ambulances there.  In my spare time I enjoy playing a number of sports - although I have been told that enthusiasm and skill are not quite the same thing! I'm a big Bake Off fan and I love cooking. Looking forward to meeting everyone and helping out with the SJMA.

Anoushka Sharp

Hi, my name is Anoushka, I am a 3rd year Medical Student at Barts and I am very excited about building a connected community of Jewish Medical Students this year. I am a creative, fun loving and excitable person - especially if coffee is involved! I enjoy playing music, drawing cartoons, running, making people laugh, cycling and learning all things sciency (that is a word).
