With all the school work that I have, I thought of finding an activity that will take my mind off work. Apart from my biggest involvement in dance, I have also been involved with the Pre-Medical Society, summer programs, and church. In addition to relieving me from my school and family stress, being involved in such activities has helped my social and time management skills.
In school, I have involved myself in the Pre-Medical Society since the beginning of my freshman year. Every other week, different types of doctors come to my school and elaborate on their profession. They talk about how they what they achieved, what they had to study, and why the like it. Apart from getting to know different types of doctors, I also had the chance to take

Most importantly, I had the chance to help organize events for the children at Chris Evert Children’s Hospital. We organize events for the hospital such as Pizza’s and Christmas parties. It has been a really big opportunity to be a part of this because I love seeing all these children smile and be happy. They get excited when they see Santa and their presents. The club raises money in order to buy the children the gifts they want. It has really encouraged me to be more interested in Medicine.

For example, I loved my time helping out at Potential Church but I just know that it is something I enjoyed doing but not something I will consider doing for the rest of my life. I am grateful though I had the chance to work with the members at the church because then I would have never known that it was something I would not want end up doing. In the good side, I have met different kinds of people and I have grown into a well-rounded person. On the other hand, I love being part of the Pre-Med Society and being able to go to the National Youth Leadership Program. I am positive that I want to be part of the medical field. The summer program at Nova Southeastern University has taught more responsibility. Since my parents were not around, I had to wash my own clothes and wake up myself. I know I can count on my mom when I’m at home, but at the university, I had to be more responsible. It felt like a preview of my life in college and I am glad I got to experience this. Also, I received two college credits to George Mason University for completing the program. I am happy I had all these experiences that make me a little more positive in what I want in my
