Amanda Ly, Medical Student

Amanda Ly is a third year osteopathic medical student and the face behind the popular Instagram account 'CoffeeandScrubs', where she combines her love of photography with a behind-the-scenes look at the life of a medical student. Throughout her first two years of medical school, she represented her class and school in various leadership positions and is her class' current Vice President. Amanda is currently on rotations looking for her dream specialty and is passionate about sharing her journey on social media to inspire and mentor those with similar aspirations.

In her own words:

"Since day one of medical school, I loved having the opportunity to talk to medical school applicants and mentoring those with medical school aspirations. I also realized halfway through my first year that mental health was incredibly important to me, which sparked my interest in pursuing hobbies like photography again. I combined both my love of photography and mentoring into the Instagram, CoffeeandScrubs, and it has inspired me to be the best I can be while inspiring others too."
