My passion is medicine.
My main passion is medicine because ever since I was young I was always interested in how things work, particularly the human body. The body was complex to me, and I continued to question my parents as to why things happen in the body. Towards the end of 9th grade, I developed a particular love for neurosurgery. I wanted to understand how the brain works and how it controls every aspect. I fell in love with neurosurgery, particularly because of the movie Doctor Strange. Doctor Strange's main character, Dr. Strange, was an brilliant neurosurgeon. He introduced me and dragged me deeper into the depths of medicine and science. When I was dragged in, I found I didn't want to ever come back out.
The UConn Pre- College Summer Program will help me to gain an early start on the all fields of medicine and introduce me into the subject I am interested in.
I can always count of Fawzy to share out whole group with profound answers to challenge questions, to help his group mates reach his high level of achievement and to demonstrate the strong leadership skills he needs in order to pursue an interest in medicine. Fawzy is a good candidate for the program because he has the academic capabilities, the overall determination and the discipline to see his career plans to fruition. He will meet and exceed the rigor of the UConn Pre-College Summer Program.
The program was simply amazing. I gained many friends and formed networks. But most importantly I learned so much about Medicine and Medical Anthropology and Global Health. With the experience of this program I know have a deeper context of medicine and a more refined list of possible careers. Thank you once again to my donors and my supporters. And thank you especially to the Wishbone team for helping me with my journey!
I am extremely excited to be able to attend the Uconn PCS program. I want to thank my donors and the wishbone team for helping me to reach this point. I hope to make many good memories and hold on to experiences that I now will help me in my near and far future.
