You’ve found my blog! Thanks for taking the time to read it.
I’m Meghan. I’m currently in my third year of medical school (out of four years) and have therefore set my life on a path to be a lifelong student. And before anyone asks how med school is – the answer is rough. It’s hard and it’s exhausting and sometimes isolating, but it’s also amazing and challenging and an incredible life path.
In the midst of the challenges of medical school I found myself needing an outlet for my stress, which is when I found Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I train at an academy with world champions, and am learning every day to not only be a better jiu jitsu practitioner, but a better person. I’ve been training BJJ since June 2012 and am currently a BLUE belt under Ribeiro Jiu Jitsu in Toledo.
This is my story. Sometimes I feel motivated, and sometimes I struggle with defeat. But along the way, I’m learning to live life for myself and for others and to make it memorable.
