My name is Brianna Armour (also formerly known as “@saggoddess” - current name is “@futuremdbri via Instagram).

I just graduated this May 2017 with my Bachelor of Science in both Business Management and Biology and minored in Entrepreneurship and I am now in graduate school pursuing my Masters in Public Health with a concentration in Epidemiology. Upon finishing my MPH I plan to apply to both Allopathic and Osteopathic Medical school programs in hopes of becoming a medical doctor.

In addition, I currently work as an EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) and a Patient Care Tech (PCT) in the Emergency Department. I am also a mommy to both human and fur babies.

⭐️~Perfectly imperfect at navigating this challenging world and journey of medicine, motherhood, education and life as a woman and an immigrant minority; all while trying to drink enough water, ensuring time is consistently made to do good for others and making sure my daughter remembered to feed the fish😕.

⭐️ But through it all, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Keep your sparkle magic glowing amazing women! even when the chips are down below sea level because the world is depending on you!💗👑⭐️✨~

~Jewel-Ava was literally my biggest cheerleader all day. In school she told everyone how excited she was to be leaving early for her moms graduation and all evening she cheered, hugged me and said how proud she was of me and that she heard other families saying how much they loved my cap topper lol. I'm so blessed to have shared this day with her and showed her what all these long nights led up to and the long nights I'll be enduring for the next few years. It will all be worth it though to provide for her everything she deserves and pave generational success for her, her children, their children and beyond! 📜👩🏽‍🎓🎓💪🏽🌸💗~

“Jewel just surprises me in ways I didn’t think I could continue to be surprised. She also pushes me to keep going even on days when I’m not believing in myself, I know she believes in me. I know that the reason that she want’s to be a veterinarian so strongly is because she knows that her mommy is pursuing becoming a doctor.

One thing she told me one day was I want to be a veterinarian because you want to help humans and I want to help animals that can’t help themselves. I fall in love with her a little more and more each day. She really does. She’s the light of my life.”

~#TBT: can't believe it's already been two weeks to the day when I walked across that stage! The day felt like such a blur and just like that the day was over, time truly flies 😩. And I've already failed at taking it easy for a little while; instead I am now working more than ever sigh... looking forward to a weekend getaway in 2 weeks so dang needed! Cheers to the class of 2017!👏🏾🎓👩🏽‍🎓🎉🎊🌸~

“As an EMT, I am the first one on the scene with sufficient enough training to help get the patient assessed, stabilized and ready for transport. That is an adrenaline rush and privilege that I do not take lightly or for granted.”

I am an Afro-Latina, an immigrant, a female, a non-traditional student, a mother and living in remission with long-term effects from breast cancer. My life is a walking challenge against adversity in the medical field but yet... I am still here kicking  the challenges in the face and taking names.

And I will not stop until M.D. or D.O. is behind my name working to be the best provider I can to my patients, helping to uplift future premeds who come after me and helping to empower other women, especially minority women who face extreme adversity in medicine.

“Motherhood is the job that you never “clock-out” from, it will be the longest shift of your life. But when I see the sparkle in my daughter’s eyes and she tells me how proud she is of me, I know that being a mom was truly meant to be my “starring role.”
