January 2015 Member of the month
Congratulations to Destinee Ingrao, DMD ‘15, for being selected as the January ASDA Member of the Month. Destinee was elected Editor-in-Chief for the Newsletter Committee last spring.
When asked about her committee, Destinee said, “My favorite thing has been helping and seeing the newspaper evolve.” In December 2014, the Newsletter committee released its biggest issue ever! With more articles and more and new people writing, this will be the issue ASDA submits for the Gold Crown Award, which is excitingly held in our hometown this year! #idealboston
Just as many of those who caught the ASDA fever, Destinee believes that ASDA is a great way for dental students to learn about and start getting involved in our profession. “Since dentistry is a profession of constant evolution, it's important to become aware and informed about current topics related to dentistry,” she said.
While finishing requirements and studying for and preparing for boards, she hardly has any time left for adventures. However, she just got accepted into her dream program- AEGD at Georgia Regents University, which has been a positive reinforcement and keeps her going till the end!
Destinee has a very sweet dog that she loves to spend time with. In particular, she loves taking her to the park for play dates and spending time outside, which helps her distress and remember the bigger picture in life.
ASDA truly appreciates Destinee’s efforts and wishes her luck in finishing graduation requirements and in future endeavors.
