I am an aspiring physician assistant who desires to support those during their greatest time of need. This priority solidified my desire to serve and support underserved communities and, hence, allow me to cater to the underprivileged citizen's health needs. These men, women, and children are suffering the most in medically underserved populations. So in five years, I see myself practicing primary care in an underserved community. By practicing medicine in an underserved community, I will be granted the opportunity to serve a large number of underprivileged citizens, engage in health promotion experiences, and participate in increasing awareness of health and well-being among disadvantaged communities. Working in disadvantaged communities will
The two weeks I tracked were November 6th through the 19th. I chose those days because I was paid on the 6th, and I wouldn’t be paid again until the 20th. By choosing those dates, I was able to see how much I spent from that paycheck and how much left over I actually had. I liked being able to see how much of my paycheck was left over by the time I was paid again. I use that extra money for a buffer in case there is something I have to spend a little extra money on, and so I always have money in my bank account.
It was a cold autumn night in North Carolina when I realized that my youth was being taken away from me. I wanted to run away and go back to the life that I had known; where I had the opportunity to go to school was happy and understood the language. Instead I was in a foreign land with my family and we could not return for there was no future in my homeland. According to my father, we had to keep migrating because it was the best thing for our family. It was then when I realized that this is not what I wanted for my family and I asked my father that we needed to go somewhere where I can go to school because it was affecting everybody including my little brother. My father raised me to believe I could accomplish anything I set my mind to
Lee University’ mission in scholastic curriculums is, “to develop within the students’ knowledge, appreciation, understanding, ability, and skills which will prepare them for responsible Christian living in a complex world.” In implementation, the practice of ethical action, redemptive service and responsible citizenship within the church, local community, and globally, are emphasized. As an older student at Lee University, I admit that these values were heavily communicated to me, by my mother, from an early age. After high school, I did not pursue a vocation and worked in a factory in Alabama for a couple of years. It was during this time, that I realized, that God wanted more out of and for me. I returned home to Tennessee, and by
The position of honors is a much valued and highly respected position in which only a select few are chosen for its place. I myself believe that I am a suitable candidate for such a position given the type of person that I am as well as my personal experiences through business.
Since an early age my passion has always been to help others. In every aspect of my educational career and in my jobs, I have always determined that helping someone is the goal. Helping people is a goal that can be achieved in any work field regardless of what one does. For the last five years, I have volunteered for a non-profit organization named “Hogar de Ninos: Semillas de Fe” (translates to “A Home for Children: Seeds of Faith”). In this organization, a group of young adults have traveled to the Dominican Republic once a year for a period of two weeks each trip. Our goal is to help the impoverished children. These children have been exposed to countless traumatic events including being physically, emotionally, and sexually abused. The organizations mission consists of helping develop these children
Consilience - The Journal of Sustainable Development will allow me to share my passion for building a sustainable world. As a youth ambassador for Plan International, I have become cognizant of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations, and how to accomplish them. In the global development club I run in my school, we are constantly searching of new ways to target different SDGs. We have organized projects and events relating to climate action, gender equality, clean water, sanitation, and quality education. At Columbia, I will be able to capitalize on my past experience to serve as a noteworthy voice in Consilience. To build a sustainable world, collaboration and global cooperation are essential. It is arduous to globally
Yellow sheets, a menacing term that I once thought would never become a reality, were first presented to me in 2016 in AP Calculus AB and have remained a constant presence throughout my AP Calculus BC and Multivariable Calculus courses. These have a reputation for being the most challenging questions you will ever face in the math classroom during your four years of high school. The yellow sheets were the first form of assessment that I had to complete that focused on my understanding of a concept and not just the memorization of formulas. This was a menacing task for me because I had never seen anything quite like these questions. These problems not only tested my academic ability but my academic perseverance. These multi-step problems encouraged
If I were to choose an intended audience to target, my choice would be adolescents currently attending high school. High school students in this day and age have their plates full to the brim. With all the classes they are required to take, the pile of homework they’re assigned each night, and the extracurricular activities they’ve signed up for, it’s no wonder that they don’t have much time to think about the future. Despite having full schedules, I believe that a modern home economics, or life skills class, would be worth freeing up time for. My plan would be to create an impactful video and several different flyers to promote my idea and maximize its reach. The video would be distributed through social media platforms such as Facebook,
Background. My application paper addresses a relationship that I have with a colleague of mine who I met in the Fall of 2013. My colleague's name has been changed for privacy purposes. The first interaction with Stephen came when I was pledging a fraternity on campus. Stephen was a handsome guy, he spent a good amount of his time to maintain his physique and professional appearance.
As a child I was always looking forward to the one day of the year when the sky would light up with American pride and patriotism. As the fireworks would shoot into the air, I would stare with amazement and pride. I have always looked forward to this meaningful day.
I care deeply about people with disabilities. I believe that people do not understand what is really like for someone who happens to have a disability. They treat them rudely or differently. They do not understand the way the perceive topics, the way the take some remark a person may have said, and they do not understand that they are teased. I think we need to think before we do things.
I am a good team member. I am very cooperative and helpful in times of need. I can develop and maintain good relationships with other team members. Knows and supports teammates’ work and deliverables. Helps teammates who need or ask for support or assistance.
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
