One of the most attractive components rooted in the etiology of the PLME program lies in the ability to pursue a true love of learning outside the conventional medical school. The scholarly thinker in me wishes to continue growing and enriching all sides of my character, not just the one-dimensional side born of a STEM foundation, but those belonging to a broad liberal arts education.
The National FFA Organization is an organization that I have been devoted to full heartedly, as a student, I grew hooked to every opportunity that FFA could offer and fell in love FFA goal, which has been consistent for every generation. Their goal is to develop leadership, personal growth, and future success, as an officer, I have promoted my responsibility to lead in my own unorthodox way of being gentle and graceless.
Statistics have shown that students who participate in an after-school club during high school show better academic performance and it also gave them a feeling of closeness to other members of the club. High school experience is much more enjoyable if a student is involved in an extracurricular activity. Students will know where they belong, and their once felt loneliness will be gone. California Scholarship Federation (CSF) is a state-wide organization that engages in many fun service programs throughout the year. In addition to that, CSF recognizes students who demonstrate outstanding academic achievements. CSF welcomes students from freshmen to seniors, and rewards members for doing good deeds. The number one thing I want to accomplish before I graduate from high school is to become the president of CSF club because I enjoy giving volunteer services to my community and it's a perfect opportunity for me to meet new friends.
I have chosen to apply to UCSF School of Pharmacy because of its unique 3-year program. This accelerated, year-round program will allow me to enter advanced training or my practice earlier. The Pharm.D. program of UCSF focuses on patient care using the latest innovation and scientific developments, which will give me more opportunities to expertize my knowledge and fundamental skills, to gain clinical experience, and to prepare myself for my transition from a student to a professional in the field. In addition, the pharmacy curriculum at UCSF provides students the chance to work on in-depth projects about topics that interest them.

I’ve found that my experiences laboring through three year of medical school to be surprisingly similar to learning another language. Being surrounded by patients, physicians and nurses at the beginning of my 3rd year, I quickly realized the vast amount of clinical knowledge that I have yet to master. Consequently, I found that my learning rate is nowhere quicker than on the
The University of Pennsylvania presents its students with a plethora of possibilities that are unavailable at other schools. Not only does UPenn offer prestige and strong academics, but also a close-knit residential life and a beautiful campus. Moreover, UPenn’s low student-teacher ratio highly appeals to me, for small classes provide more cohesiveness and intimacy than large classes, thus enabling me to excel in my academic studies. The college of arts and sciences provides a interdisciplinary approach to the classic liberal arts education. Gives me strong foundation for medical school. Unique curriculum structure which allows students to customize their education. UPenn also has many benefits that pertain to the major I wish to enter—biochemistry—including
The transition from being a child, dependent upon parents for everything, to an independent adult is one of the most stressful times a person will endure. Legally speaking, 18 is the age when you become an adult but the number doesn’t describe the responsibilities and independence you must take on. College is seen as the “big step” into the real world and many people struggle in choosing where to make their transition. I would like to take my “big step” by attending Florida Atlantic University.
From day one I was seeking to discover a new challenge. I dove into the hardest courses that FM had to offer, and I discovered a new world. I began with Anatomy and Physiology I and II my first year with Susan Mcleod and Flor Trespalacios. Susan challenged everyone that took her class to search for a deeper understanding of the human body. She, like many other science professors, demanded hard work. Passing her class gave everyone who took it a strong sense of accomplishment for what they had finished. Flor was simply an inspiration. She spoke about hard work and dedication, and her path to getting where she is now was an incredible journey. She juggled many tasks, along with getting her degree, and worked toward her future with vigor. It inspired me to work harder than I have ever had before; to take on new challenges than I ever thought that I
Ever since I was a small girl, I’ve been told that I’m “Mature beyond my years,” or that I “Don’t act my age.” Upon hearing such comments I was confused. However, as I grew older and became more self-aware, I realized how utterly true they were. In retrospect, I credit much of my maturity to being raised by two grandparents who have been senior citizens the entirety of the time I’ve known them. I’ve always harbored a passion for learning and have an innate ability to quickly grasp concepts. I admire any person or teacher who can challenge me because I know it contributes to personal growth. I also know that participating in The College of St. Scholastisca’s PSEO Program is perfect for me because I would be challenged to grow academically, mentally, and even spiritually. I thoroughly believe that I’d be hard-pressed to find another college that
I have grown up on my family farm outside of Albert Lea MN for my whole life. I have always taken a special interest in the beef cattle on our farm. I currently manage all of the herd records, and own part of the business. Throughout my SAE project through FFA, I started my own herd as well. I work extremely hard on our farm with the beef chores. I also help out with the crop farming on my farm by running tractors and watching bins. Because I have such an interest in cattle, I started working on a dairy farm two years ago. I currently milk 150 cows before, and after school everyday. I take a lot of time with my school studies as well. I maintain a 4.0 even while taking numerous college classes, and working. One of my greatest passions while in school has been FFA. I have served as the historian and the President of our
I am interested in becoming a member of FLOC because I know I have the potential to succeed as a leader at University of Texas at Arlington. My skills as a speaker and a guide make leadership something I can utilize to inspire those who follow me.
Encouraging and inspiring young minds have always been one of my favorite activities. In the past 4 years, I have had the opportunity to influence and teach new and upcoming FFA members. Such a contingency has been a responsibility not taken lightly by myself. Not only have I been teaching, I have. been learning alongside them. These young adults have taught me how to be a better leader and educator.
I was born the fourth of December 1991 in Cranbrook British Columbia. I lived there for 18 years. Before joining the military I worked as a fry cook at a Burger King for three years and held part time jobs working for the College of the Rockies summer camp programs during the summer. My parents are currently living together in Cranbrook BC. My father works outside the province testing railway tracks for two months at a time, then returns home for two to three weeks. My mother acts as the main contact point of the family, she works as a financial clerk. I have a 22 year old sister who will be attending university in Calgary this September. I attended Mount Baker Secondary School in Cranbrook and graduated in 2009
Pursing a career as a medical doctor is an opportunity for me to mentor youth in underserved populations. As a child, I was raised in the low income, urban community of Roxbury, MA. Although not as notorious today, the neighborhood had garnered negative attention for its high crime rates. My mother emigrated from Haiti and raised me as a single parent. Due to our financial circumstance, Roxbury became our permanent residence. I have always felt there was something lacking in Roxbury in comparison to other towns I visited. My teenage years were largely spent in the suburban town of Stoneham where I attended high school. There was a literal difference in air quality and a psychology contrast in future prospects. While native students of
