2017-2018 RWJMS Literary Society Editors
Johnathan Yao, Class of 2021
Johnathan Yao (Co-President) graduated from Yale University in 2015, where he wrote for his college newspaper. Outside of studying medicine, Johnathan enjoys long-form journalism, creative writing, and 19th century Russian literature.
Ava Hunt, Class of 2021
Ava (Co-President) graduated from Yale in 2017 with a B.S. in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology. Ava undertook her first literary endeavor at the age of 7 when she self-published a poem by transcribing it in pen into the margin of one of her mother’s favorite poetry collections. Needless to say she hopes that her writing skills have improved a bit since then.
Shahyan Rehman, Class of 2021
Zero score and 2 years ago, Shahyan spent time at the University of Rochester reading about the anthropology and sociology of religion. He also liked to explore medical humanities and find a way to blend his interests in medicine and literature.

Max Herman, Class of 2021
It is rumored that Max once attended Vassar College and would often walk the halls with his nose buried in novels by Phillip K. Dick and Haruki Murakami. These days, he likes to write prose inspired by his dreamscapes and is trying to find a way to creatively write about medicine. To his dismay, the latter proves difficult. With Shahyan, Max is the co-webmaster of Arbor Vitae. If you have any comments or questions about the blog, you can email me!
Veronica Kim, Class of 2021.
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single woman in pursuit of a medical degree must be in want of some literature. And so, not too long ago, Veronica studied psychology and English while at the Johns Hopkins University. Alas, now she is treasurer.
