Amir's Story

My passion is biology. My passion for biology was discovered as a child, when everyday for about 30 minutes to an hour, I'd indulge in reading my animal encyclopedia to learn about the different species of animals. As a child, I always enjoyed telling my family about my observations and what i've learned about the animals I have read about. My passion for biology stemmed from my love for animals, and their many adaptations and methods that they use for survival. However, I do understand that biology is a wild blanket term for many different forms of life, from animals to botany, and to the study of bacteria, I possess a lot of interest in those studies as well.

Attending Envision NYLF is pivotal in my pursue of my biology passion because it'll allow me to learn much more then what I can at home. My road to enlightenment in the field of biology will be much quicker and I will learn much more then how I would by conventional means at home. It allows me to get hands-on experience to the different biological fields including a bit of medical science if it so interests me.

A Note from Ms. Everhart, Amir's Teacher

Amir is a fantastic candidate for the Envision NYLF Medicine program. His academic abilities are only paralleled with his charming personality and down-to-earth demeanor. Without a doubt, I know that Amir will transcend all the challenges he faces from growing up in an underserved community and coming from limited resources. This program will allow Amir to explore his passion without being limited by the world around him--he will not only gain knowledge, experience, and friendship from this program, but I am certain he will add to the quality of the program.
