Inspired and unified by the humanitarian spirit of Wonder Woman, the Wonder Woman Passion Project aims to assemble a Healers League that empowers and mentors the next generation of healthcare team leaders and members by responsibly leveraging social media. The Wonder Wisdom Series features individuals from all aspects of healthcare and science who provide truthful and resilient stories of their journey. The creator of the WWPP, Hye-Jin Yun, shared with us her vision and hopes for this non-traditional method of mentorship. If you are a pre-health student or medical student in preclinical years, you can follow along with the “Med Student Wonderland: A Day-in-the-Life” Series via InstaStory, and feel free to DM for mentorship.
Hye-Jin Yun is a rising fourth-year medical student, Class President, and Gold Humanism Honor Society inductee at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine. She has lived in seven global cities and mostly grew up in San Francisco. She graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa in Neuroscience & Behavior from Barnard College of Columbia University. Prior to medical school, her experiences are diverse to include working with the CBS Evening News and UNICEF USA in New York City. Passionate about connecting with people and storytelling, she hopes to mentor forward, educate, and foster conversation across individuals in medicine, healthcare, science, public health, media, policy, business, and humanitarian spaces through the Wonder Woman Passion Project.
