My journey at The Ohio State University has altered many aspects of my life and has strengthened the skills I need to be successful. Taking a look back at my first two years, I have been able to meet a lot of new people and take many fascinating classes that have shown me the direction I want to go in life. I particularly enjoyed the opportunities presented to me through the Scholar’s program, as I was able to hear from physicians, current medical students, and admission officers that helped shape my expectations of life after undergrad. Through my neuroscience major courses and a mixture of general education, I have solidified my passion for medicine. Along with this, volunteering and researching at Nationwide Children’s Hospital has given me a glimpse at the career of a physician.
Moving forward into the second half of my undergraduate studies, I will continue to take pre-med classes to prepare myself for the MCAT and eventually medical school. I will also continue volunteering at Nationwide Children’s and learning more about the field of medicine. I hope to join more clubs and volunteer more, specifically unrelated to medicine, to diversify my workload and broaden my interests.
