Hometown: Dalton, Georgia
Future Plans: M.D.
My name is Anisha Mittal, and I am from Dalton, Georgia. I am a middle child, and my older brother, Ashmit Mittal, is a Fisk alumnus. As a junior Biology (Pre-Medicine) major and Music (Piano/Flute) minor, I have been able to interweave two seemingly different, yet complementary, passions. Fisk, being a small, liberal arts college, has opened doors for opportunities that I may not have received otherwise. I am a participant of the Fisk-Meharry B.A./M.D. program, a student researcher as a Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) scholar, president of the Rotaract Club of Fisk University, and a student athlete in the Fisk Women’s Tennis Team, among other activities. I am grateful for the endless support and mentoring that I have received from professors who strive to push their students to unimaginable heights. In the future, I look forward to attending medical school and eventually practicing medicine in underserved areas. Thanks to Fisk’s close-knit, nurturing atmosphere, I have truly been able to step out of my introverted shell and develop a network of friends, mentors, and opportunities that will guide me for years to come.
