My inspiration for Yellow Pomelo draws from my personal experience. Whenever I get sick, I get worried, attempting to self diagnose myself. When I am face to face with a doctor or facetiming my aunt who is a doctor, I feel reassured. Eventually, the thought occurred to me that I wasn’t the only person who experienced this. I figured there were others in need for whom a video conference with a doctor could go a long away.

Inspired by my experiences volunteering at UC San Francisco Benioff Hospital, I began drafting a plan. Already having seen the poverty in India, this was the first place of interest in my mind. Before I could embark on my journey, I figured my venture needed a name. After struggling for a name, I decided to think of something simple. I looked at my yard and saw green grass and a Pomelo tree. The name Yellow Pomelo sounded interesting, and after remembering my grandparents telling me about Pomelos having medicinal benefits, I chose “Yellow Pomelo” as the name for my venture.

And so I set off!
