I was born and raised in Bronx, New York and currently attend Queens College where I am considering a pre-med track, specifically pediatrics or radiology. I am, however, open to exploring other specialties within the field medicine. My interest in medicine was inspired by my cousin who is an anesthesiologist. One word of advice she gave me was to study yourself first to then go after what you are most passionate about. I really enjoyed taking Biology and Chemistry courses. In my free time, I also enjoy watching medical shows such as House M.D., ER and Grey’s Anatomy. It is a dream of mine to be a part of a medical team.
I am seeking opportunities to develop and apply my skills in the medical field. I exemplify investigative abilities in my work. I have a passion for helping others and envision a world that has the technology to treat and cure all diseases/illnesses. I hope my dedication to medicine will bring changes that help to save lives. I am a focused, ambitious, and passionate individual who hopes to become a well-respected doctor that will make a difference in the world of medicine.
I feel that my experience as an America Needs You Fellow will give additional support toward my future goals. I intend to leverage the opportunities presented through this program to succeed and one day help others to succeed as well.
