The most important experiences I’ve had in science began when I was a child and have continued through my time as a student researcher at Howard University. My exposure to science in medicine occurred at a young age and on an intimate level. When I was young, I had various health problems asthma, allergies, and eczema; it was as if my body was rejecting the world it was in. My parents immigrated to the United States so their children could have the opportunity to realize our dreams. Every day I think about the hardships they went through and it pushes me, and makes me a better scientist. The challenges I experienced at a young age sparked my initial interest in medicine, but later influenced my decision to pursue MD/PhD. As a child frequently
My parents raised me with a strong sense of kindness, independence, and work ethic that has guided me through academics and service. In my home, you succeed in academics by studying hard and doing what you can to get good grades- whether that be extra credit, tutoring, or retaking tests if the teacher allows it. At the same time, I was taught never to rely on other people to get opportunities for me or push me through- I had to want it. These values have shaped my choices both in education and extracurriculars.
I felt my heart racing, heard my name being called, and suddenly, anxiety turned into elation. Within moments, I was walking across the international stage in Orlando in front of 16,000 people. I had won 5th at DECA Internationals!
I believe that play and social interaction keep an essential role in every child’s development, that is the reason I decided to pursue a career in childcare. Through daily interaction with children in their early years, I find children are so interesting, the way they can be so creative and imaginative is amazing.
With my twenty years of experience in Early Childhood Education, I’ve collaborated with teachers in developing and implementing ideas to support student’s academic performance. I performed student’s academic assessments. I complied and maintained daily logs based on student's level of progression. In addition, I logged in financial statements, received inventory items and organized inventory for distribution of class materials needed for instruction. I’ve provided effective parental support with the families to develop and implement teaching techniques to enhance their child's growth development and knowledge of school readiness skills. My resume contains additional information on my experience and
My name is Brittney Duffy and I transferred from the financial assistance department at Metro. I have been employed with Baptist for 3 years. I started off as a CNA at the heart hospital Downtown and transitioned into the patient financial department in 2015. I am currently working on my Bachelors at FSCJ for Supervision and Management and I will graduate in summer 2018. I am extremely excited to be joining the BMDA team and am looking forward to starting this new journey in my career.
As part of the degree requirements of the Bachelor of Arts in Consular and Diplomatic Affairs program, all CDA students must—before graduating—complete 500 hours of practicum work. To fulfill the graduation requirement for an internship, I was able to grab the opportunity to apply for an internship and use my academic training experience for three years to the workplace in the real world. The course has provided me the venue to further enhance my knowledge and competencies as CDA student in my chosen field of specialization and future career objectives after graduation. As a student trainee, I have been able to take advantage of the tools and skills I have been equipped by my intensive academic formation in the college, to be competent enough
Hard work and empathy were instilled in me at a young age and ultimately have guided my life decisions. I always knew I wanted a career doing something that involved helping people and left me feeling that I made a difference in their lives. I finished my undergraduate degree in Nutrition, but in the end lacked passion for the profession. Following a personal experience with an Occupational Therapist, I was able to see the positive outcome she had on my grandfathers recovery which lead me to pursue my career in occupational therapy.
I am driven by my ambitions and thrive to learn not only to educate myself, but to use my knowledge to educate others. Learning is not always associated with school; we learn things through experiences, mistakes, life lessons, people around us, and most importantly ourselves. In life I aspire to become a neurosurgeon like Dr. Ben Carson who has truly inspired me in various ways, and have what is called "Healing Hands". My favorite quote is from his mother, "You can do anything anybody else can do, except you can do it better." I carry these words with me every single day, with ever decision I make. One of my main goals in life is to visit Africa and build schools and manage a hospital so children in the area will receive a proper education, as well as a proper care. Through my own experience, I can truly say that life in a developing country is very challenging and I believe that these children deserve, as well as anyone else, the chance to learn in order to be successful in the future. This audacious path, which I have chosen, involves a great deal of learning and I know that I am most ready to do what is necessary for my
Combined BA/MD programs are often singularly focused with an intense pace and rigorous coursework. In my eyes, they are beauteous opportunities, suitable for both my skills and my goals. Being part of a combined medicine program would not only provide me with the motivation to continue challenging myself, but also offer me the freedom to explore my other interests, and in turn receive a more well-rounded foundation for specialist medical training.
I believe my membership on DSAC will bring great value to Smith undergraduate experience. I have had a very non-traditional journey and matriculation into the Smith school. However, I believe that I have made a positive impact and created value for my peers in the during my time here. My background before business was in art, as I am a painter and designer. These traits have influenced my personalized passion for the business school greatly. My hopes for my career at the business school is to collaborate with fellow students to create change in Smith that will stand the test of time. DSAC is comprised of leaders in Smith that want to come together to better the Smith experience, and that is something I aim to be a part of. The question I continuously ask myself before I embark on any experience is,
I know I can be a great assistant, but that is not what I want for myself, I want to be a Speech Pathologist working in a hospital and helping people with traumatic brain injuries. This is a long-term goal that I’m willing to spend years reaching, because if given the opportunity to work with this population, I will get to blend not only my general knowledge, but also my love of science and desire to help others. I have had no experience with disabled people, and being in this undergrad program is my first- hand look at seeing what it’s like for those with disabilities to struggle daily and have frustrations I can’t even begin to imagine. This genuinely gives me a whole-hearted desire to help others and give them the assistance they need to live like everyone else, something I never truly had a passion for until
Read your discussion board presentation. I have to applaud you for the courage, strength, and perseverance qualities that you possess among all the life’s curves that come your pathway and still wanting to achieve the goal to complete the PHD program through North Central University. As I have just joined the program, you have given me the mindset to keep it going no-matter what obstacles come my pathway. I worked in a Healthcare setting for more than 25 years as a Unit Secretary, Monitor Technician and wanted something more to life. I decided to go back to school and wanted to pursue a career in Accounting and looking at the real world, realized that I should continue my education one more step further in order to be able to withstand
There is nothing like taking a long walk in the evening with the stars out. While most people are thinking about how their day went or what is occurring within their personal lives, I tend to stare up and take in the vastness of space, wondering how did life get here and are there other planets like ours.
I was diagnosed with dyslexia in elementary school. My parents believed in my academic abilities, and strengths, including determination, perseverance, and organization. I have worked hard to earn a high GPA in college. Many things are possible when given an equal chance in life, and everyone deserves an opportunity. My experiences with a disability and diversity shaped my personality. Advocating for my academic needs taught me to speak up in a respectful way, and strengthened my interest in assisting others in communicating their needs. I am passionate about working with people that have disabilities, injuries, and deficiencies so that I can help them to achieve as much independence as possible, while improving their health and quality of
