Danielle's Story

My passion is biology.

Being brought up with a family that excelled in the math and science subjects, I couldn't imagine myself pursuing a career that didn't focus on math or science. Initially, I had a fixed mindset of being a nurse-midwife. However, after researching articles and videos, I couldn't see myself doing this as a profession. After ruling out nurse-midwife, I soon started down the path of computer engineering. After taking summer classes at York college, I realized that coding wasn't my forte. Whilst looking into other careers that combined both hands-on work with thinking deeply lead me to biology. What was more attracting about biology was how broad it was. Within the area of biology, there's biomedical engineering, biochemical engineering, food scientist and more. As I continued research about the different jobs connected to biology, my interest in the subject develops more every day.

Whilst reading the programs descriptions and visiting their individual websites, a few things caught my eye specifically about the Adelphi-Winthrop-University Hospital Summer Science Institute program. The very first thing that caught my eye is that the program was partnered with Adelphi college. Adelphi is one of the top colleges that I'd like to attend after graduating high school. The next thing that caught my eye was that the program was partnered with a hospital. I believe that the opportunity to learn hands-on in a hospital would expand my medical experiences for future references. Lastly, what attracted me to this program was that I'd learn about different topics, including the understanding of human genes, medical imaging technologies, X-rays, ultrasounds, MRIs, radiation and medical technology for treating diseases, such as cancer. In conclusion, this is why I believe that this program will be the best program to explore the world of biology.

A Note from Ms. Dupree, Danielle's Teacher

Danielle is a good candidate for Adelphi Winthrop Summer Science Institute because in the time that I have known Danielle, her work ethic has vastly improved. Year after year, I have seen Danielle's growth. Danielle can benefit from having this opportunity this summer because it will help her in getting admitted into the universities of her choice, but also give her great hands on experience.
