Gold Humanism Honor Society

September Student of the Month

Miranda Smith

Miranda Smith, MSIV

SEPTEMBER, 2021 - Miranda Smith is not only a great friend but an invaluable resource to students throughout the medical school. Miranda is the first person to introduce herself to a 1st year student to make them feel at ease, and she speaks with a calming voice that brings comfort to her patients. She has been essential in helping underclassmen prepare for quizzes, tests, SP exams, and clinical experiences. She has also been a rock in encouraging mental health among her peers. Many students call on Miranda’s wisdom and advice to guide them through their medical school journey. Her vibrant energy is contagious and will turn anyone’s day in the right direction. She is passionate about providing the best possible care to patient’s inside and outside of the hospital. Through her volunteer efforts at the HUB ministries, she has been able to extend her passion and selflessness to individuals who are transient or homeless in the Shreveport area. Miranda is extremely determined and her drive to be successful inspires others to follow her example. She wants to see everyone do well, and she helps everyone achieve that while also being the best student she can be herself. She is a student who is compassionate, outgoing, and determined who shines a positive light on everyone she encounters. Miranda’s voice is heard by students in every class and her mentorship has been vital to the success of many LSU Shreveport School of Medicine students.
