How would you describe your personal style?

I think my personal style is sophisticated with an urban twist. I like mixing classic with contemporary things.

 

What's classic versus trendy to you?

I love chiffon, I love pearls, I love all those traditional things. But to make it more contemporary I might add combat boots to what I'm wearing.

 

What's a style pet peeve to you?

Camo. I really don't like camouflage. I will never wear it — I don't understand why it keeps coming back.

 

How do you decide what to wear in the morning?

I definitely dress according to my mood. Some days it's pale pinks, other days I dress like a cyber goth. I honestly feel like the less you have, the more creative you become in putting outfits together. I'm a college student, so I have to be careful how I spend money on clothes. There's nothing wrong with recycling clothes — it's a skill everybody should master.

 

Do you plan on breaking the mold and being a trendy engineer?

I definitely want to be a stylish engineer. I feel like there's this idea that loving science and loving fashion are mutually exclusive. I've met a lot of people who are in engineering and love fashion.

A Physician’s Perspective on Legalized Cannabis

On Tuesday, November 6th, Michigan became the 10th state to legalize cannabis for recreational use. Ten years ago, we had become the 13th state to legalize Cannabis for medical use. I voted for the medical cannabis law years ago because, in my view, cannabis is not a dangerous product, and too many people were being imprisoned for its use. At that time, however, I did not subscribe to the argument that there were legitimate medical uses for cannabis. How things have changed.
