About Me

My name is Mohamed M. Soumakieh, however, I go by my middle name, Malek. Both of my parents came from Syria and I was born in New York. I am currently a first year student at The Ohio State University and I am currently majoring in Biology and hopefully on the path to Medical School. I graduated from Wheelersburg High School and was also named Salutatorian. During my high school education, I was engaged in 3 years of soccer, 2 years of the National Honors Society, and 4 years of karate.

G.O.A.L.S.

Although I may still be a first year at Ohio State, I do have many goals in mind that I would love to achieve. By this semester my goal is to try to balance my studying with playing soccer. My goal in college overall is to better help me prepare for entering medical school. My goal is to hopefully end up entering a medical school where I would graduate and become a successful doctor. Finally, my long-term goal is to raise a happy family. I would like to specifically talk about my goal in college overall, entering medical school and becoming a doctor. What kind of doctor? It would be a lie if I told you what I kind of doctor I would like to be because I could only name a fourth of the options provided. Ever since the 9th grade I have been trying to focus on classes that would help me achieve my goals. Furthermore, I have been gaining experiences through volunteers in the hospital and shadowing many different types of doctors. Now that I am in the scholars program I have many more options and opportunities to help me enter medical school. Through the scholars program, I am planning on doing research on many of the various topics out there. I also would like to try and get into a leadership position in the pre-med club. Lastly, I would like to volunteer in local hospitals and maybe later on travel to other countries and help over there.
