What education have you taken?

Tell me about yourself.
Throughout high school I was involved in band, badminton, volleyball, cheerleading,baseball, and the Teen Volunteer Program atmy local hospital.
How did you become interested in your field of study?
I became interested in the biological sciences because I had decided at a young age that I wanted to be a doctor when I grew up and I thought that a background in biology and chemistry would provide a solid foundation for the knowledge one gains in medical school. The biological sciences also offer a wide variety of interesting disciplines and careers that I could pursue if I decide to change my career path.
What accomplishments are you proud of?
Some accomplishments that I am particularly proud of are my Governor General’s medal which I received when I graduated from high school as well as my involvement in CareerTrek, an educational program for young people.
Where do you see yourself in the future?
In the future I would like to attend and graduate from medical school and/or spend some time traveling. In my spare time I enjoy playing badminton and the piano.
What is your philosophy in life?
My philosophy in life has not yet been decided but I do agree with Chuck Swindoll’s belief that life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we react to it.
