I’m a Teen Educator at Planned Parenthood

Interview with Amber Barcel


What would you say are a few of the most impactful moments of your upbringing that shaped your understanding of healthcare?
I was adopted from South Korea and grew up in rural Nebraska. Everyone went to the same family doctor. If you suddenly fell ill, you could always get an appointment that day.


I had a fear that every time I went to the doctor, the entire county would know when and why.
