About Me

Hi welcome to my blog YB to MD– a story of my journey to becoming a doctor and all my adventures in between.

My name is Yasmine. I am a medical student trying to balance my studies with all the other joys life brings, and I am here to share my experiences (good and bad) with you!

I am a Palestinian-American, born and raised in Aurora, Colorado. I went to Colorado State University where I received a degree in Human Development and Family Studies. I was a nanny for many years and transitioned into teaching preschool after I graduated in May 2015. I started medical school at Ross University SOM in May 2016 in Dominica, West Indies. I am currently a third year medical student doing my core rotations at St Joes in Pontiac, Michigan!

In addition to my studies, I am a big fan of travel, coffee, football, writing and interacting with others. I love teaching and learning about our beautiful world. I get to enjoy it all with my best friend, my partner and my study buddy by my side (who also helps with catching the awesome candids on my site).

I would love to hear from you! Say hello in the comments section and send me any questions or requests to my email ybtomd@gmail.com.

I can’t wait to share my adventures with you!
