Danielle's Story

What makes me excited about medicine is that it gives me an opportunity to help people who are in need of help. I love to give a helping hand. I have this passion for medicine, because I love trying to solve problems, which is what doctors have to do to find out what is wrong with their patients.

My passion in medicine started when I was in sixth grade, when my little cousins were born premature. They both had to stay in neonatal intensive care for six months after they were born. The doctors took care of them by giving them the medicine they needed to survive. Their early births influenced me to want to become a neonatologist to take care of premature babies, just like they were.

I want to attend YMCA Global Teens, because I love traveling and helping people. My fellow students told us how rewarding it was to attend the program last year. Also, I feel that this program would help with my goals in life of becoming a doctor. When you’re selected to go to these countries, it’s not like going on a vacation. You are there to help other people. What separates my program from other programs is that it gives me the opportunity of a lifetime to go and help other people. By volunteering my time, it will help me to grow as a young adult to appreciate the opportunities I have. This trip will broaden my views of the Spanish culture and help develop my Spanish speaking skills.

A Note from , Danielle's Teacher

Danielle would benefit from an out-of-school program, because she can socialize in new situations. She will also have new opportunities to network and grow.

She is one of the most responsible and kind students. She has a very bright and positive attitude. She has already been accepted to the program and I’m confident she will be an excellent participant.

Thank you

With the help of your donation, I will be traveling to Ecuador with the YMCA Global Teens program. Global Teens allows teens like myself to experience new cultures. We will be helping the local children, meeting other teens from around the world, and visiting the different sights of Ecuador. I am very grateful for this opportunity and appreciate your donation.
