Note: Our most recent update on Amanda Fincher was on Sept. 7, the day before she left for Turkey. Amanda contact The Icon this past weekend. Here's her update:


I just finished my third week of classes and am preparing for my first exam. I am currently taking seven different classes. In my first week I attended a ceremony for the medical students where the official of the Department of Health in Turkey presented a speech and we were presented our 'white coats'. I attached a picture from after the ceremony with my university's flag.
