Erika wants role models


Arnelle has had some pretty wild career ideas. In middle school she became interested in health as she watched her parents (both nurses) and began volunteering at a nursing home for the elderly. She remembers googling “how do I become a gynecologist” and reading through lots of random forums to piece together an answer. She hopes that people in the future can just use Zimela for a search like this. She hopes to that she herself can use it to find some amazing role models and even inspire a few people, too.

She also has a cookbook, which you can check out here, and a blog that she posts too on occasion here.
