My passion for medicine, global health, developing countries, and politics are the result of my goal to become a physician. The correlation between global health and biodiversity drive my desire to reach out to war-torn, developing countries and make a difference medically and environmentally. I plan on making effective public health interventions and sustainable environmental goals.
I am pursuing a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Biology at Rutgers University-New Brunswick. Throughout college, I plan to continue volunteering at hospitals where I can learn, first-hand, the impact of working in emergency medical care. I also work with the Rutgers Red Cross Club and am currently the Vice Chair of Women in Science Education, where I am responsible for coordinating events that help empower young women to pursue careers in STEM.
I dream of becoming like Khaled Hosseini, the Afghan born physician, philanthropist, and author of The Kite Runner. The Kite Runner introduced me to Hosseini’s remarkable storytelling, influence, and accomplishments. I dream of following Hosseini’s footsteps in practicing medicine, writing novels with morals that will eternally follow its readers and establishing my own nonprofit foundation that aids war-torn, developing countries by providing essential medical care and preventative health care education. My aspirations are aimed high. I will become a physician, author and philanthropist
