Asma

When I first moved to the United States with my family from Bangladesh in 2009, I recall the obstacles along the way and recognize that they have mirrored my own growth and accomplishments. My family’s constant struggle to adapt to a new country never discouraged me. Instead, it taught me about the necessity for persistence and dedication to accomplish success. Today I am not only living my dream, but my family’s as well and I am willing to work hard to accomplish my goals. I am fluent in English, Bangla, Hindi, and Urdu.

I am a rising sophomore at York College pursuing a career as a Physician Assistant because I am passionate about science and concerned about the health and wellness of others. My interest in the healthcare field emerged from my volunteering experiences at Coney Island Hospital and SUNY Downstate Medical Center. I am currently working for a surgical group where I assist surgeons by preparing treatment rooms, supplying appropriate surgical instruments required during medical procedures, as well as by collecting patient feedback in effort to improve overall quality of care. I am certain that dedicating my life to the study of the human body in order to help others would not only be an honor, but also an opportunity to positively impact the lives of others.

I am a member of the National Society of Leadership and Success, an organization that brings goal-oriented individuals together in effort to build a better and successful tomorrow. Furthermore, I am a Success Networking Team facilitator and the Vice President of the Helping Hands club at York College. To be a part of America Needs You is an honor because the Fellows program will open the doors to great opportunities and will provide me with the invaluable resources that I might not otherwise have been able to take advantage of.
