PHMI Ambassador

Ambassadors of the Pre-Health Mentoring Initiative

Ambassadors are passionate and committed PHMI Mentors that act as representatives of PHMI. They are responsible for leading mentor training sessions, holding Pre-Health peer advising hours, attending PHMI community-building events, participating in PHMI information sessions, and acting as a source of guidance for mentors and unmatched mentees. As PHMI Ambassadors are incredibly knowledgeable about what it means to be a part of PHMI and a Pre-Health student at Hunter College, they are able to provide valuable advice to new and seasoned mentors alike. As PHMI receives an increasing number of students seeking mentorship each year, Ambassadors act as temporary mentors for mentees that are in the process of being assigned to permanent mentors, ensuring that every student has someone to turn to with their PHMI and/or pre-health-related questions, comments, and concerns, no matter how long they have been part of the program.


Ghazal Zareimehrvarz

Ghazal Zareimehrvarz is a rising junior at Hunter College majoring in biology and minoring in chemistry on the pre-dental track. Her main goal at PHMI is to build confidence in pre-health students because she believes that success is not possible unless you truly value your endeavors and believe that you can achieve your goals along with hard work and consistency. Being an immigrant, she was unfamiliar with the educational style here and when she started working toward her goals to become a dentist, she had to find her way through the obstacles and challenges without enough support. She knows how challenging this journey can be and she wants to help her peers receive the support they need.
