Over winter break, I went to Cusco, Peru on a medical service trip in which we visited villages with limited access to medical care in the surrounding area of Cusco. The community members were very grateful for our help. We learned about the barriers that they face related to health care, as well as other things we take for granted, such as education and adequate nutrition. We saw a variety of problems, but the most common were anemia, arthritis and vision/ eye problems. The lifestyle that the people lived there differs greatly from the United States; much of the work they do is physical labor on farms, harvesting food and cattle. Comparing my life with their lives alters the way I look at many situations, as this experience allowed me to see how fortunate we are in the United States.

For my CPR Internship through the Wexner Medical Center, I have gained many essential skills. First, my public speaking skills have improved because we give presentations for up to 100 people at a time. It also has helped with my planning and communication skills because we have to set up events. Finally, the program impacts many people as we teach an essential lifesaving skill.

Volunteering at the James has given me the opportunity to see many aspects of a hospital. My role has changed a few times, so I have experienced different scenarios and worked with different people. An essential skill that I have gained is collaborating with others in the Restful Night’s program. We work together as a group to work as efficiently as possible to impact as many patients as possible.

Mount has provided many opportunities to develop my leadership skills in many ways. During my time, I have been involved in service committee, which provides planning, collaboration and networking skills. It has allowed me to learn and understand about many of the social issues around Columbus, which has changed my perspective on many things.

Phi Delta Epsilon has solidified my choice to go down the medical field. We have had many specialties of doctors talk to us about their profession. I learned about the process of getting into medical school and afterwards. I have also been a part of the anatomy fashion show planning committee to help put of a successful event, which raises money for children’s miracle network.
