Yarhely's Story

I discovered my passion for medicine when I was a child. When I was younger and visited the doctor’s office, the nurses would ask what I wanted to be when I grow up. I’ve always told them I am going to be a doctor.

I became even more intrigued by medicine when I started watching shows like House and Grey’s Anatomy. These shows caused me to realize that I want to know more about medicine, because they portrayed how compelling it is to become a doctor and how much more there is to learn about science outside a high school classroom. Attending Centenary Summer Scholars will help me pursue my passion for medicine. This program will offer hands-on medical training opportunities that I hope will help me decide if this is really what I want to do in the future.

A Note from Ms. Speer, Yarhely's Teacher

Yarhely is a wonderful kid. I believe she is very aware of opportunities that she has daily and makes sure to take advantage of those. I taught Yarhely as a freshman, in a year where many of our students are struggling to find the balance between academic success and the greater freedom they find in high school. Yarhely has a strong sense of herself which is clear from her style, comportment, and the way she communicates. She displays every single day that she has a commitment to her education because she takes herself and her future very seriously. Her time at Centenary Summer Scholars this summer will be another serious step towards her future.
