BGWC is a social outlet aimed at providing motivation and mentorship for minority students looking to pursue careers in healthcare. Having dreams of becoming a successful professional in healthcare can be tough when you have a hard time finding others who look like you pave the way before you. There are unique challenges we face as minorities, and unfortunately, in this day and age it seems as though these obstacles are only increasing. With this being said, BGWC has been established to be a source of hope and inspiration as well as a source of mentorship for all those who are in need. Never hesitate to reach out for a helping hand, for advice, for answers to your wildest questions and concerns, for fitness tips, or simply to say hi!
About the creator: Sandra Coker
my name is Sandra Coker, and I am currently a second year medical student at McGovern Medical School (formerly known as UT Houston) in Houston, Texas. I graduated from the wonderful Baylor University in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. Following graduation, I worked as a scribe, lost 23 pounds, and traveled the world before beginning medical school in August of 2016. Born and raised in the city of Houston, I am all about southern comfort, sports, good eats, and sweet iced tea. I am the daughter of Hilda Coker, a respiratory therapist, and Shawley Coker Sr., an entrepreneur. I am also the sister of Shawley Coker Jr. who may be known to you all as Shawley Coker Fitness on YouTube and Instagram. As you will probably be able to see through my YouTube videos and Instagram posts, I have a love for Christ, a passion for fitness and all things medicine, and a genuine desire to help others pursue their dreams in the healthcare field.
