Achievement First Brooklyn High School
My passion is to become a successful OBGYN or surgeon.
Medicine became my passion about two years ago. I've had the same doctor since I was four, Dr. Albina Chua. Every time I go to the doctor, she makes me feel comfortable and looks out for me. At her office, I see all the pictures of children that are her patients, and I can feel the impact that she has made in not only my life, but other children's lives as well. Since then, I've idolized Dr. Chua, and I want to be like her. This, combined with my love for math and science, have inspired me to pursue a career in medicine.
By attending Emory University Pre-College Program, I will develop my passion by taking calculus, biology, and gaining college experience. If I go to Emory, I'll be living in a dorm, walking to classes on campus, and having a schedule similar to one in college.
"Jendyi demonstrates passion, persistence, and motivation every single day at our high school. In an extremely rigorous, college prep environment, she has earned over a 4.0 GPA every quarter. Our students are in school from 8am until after 5pm, and Jendyi puts in another 3-5 hours of homework on top of that. You can't earn a flawless academic record like Jendyi's without laser focus and an unwavering inner motivation.
Jendyi's teachers agree: Jendyi may well be the single most talented math student who has ever crossed the threshold of our school. In Brooklyn, she's earning all A's, all the time, and she is a big fish in our small pond. Jendyi deserves the opportunity to be challenged academically and socially by other high-achieving high school students from across the country. In addition, at Emory, Jendyi will be able to work with talented faculty on coursework that explores her interest in medicine, something that our school doesn't have the resources to facilitate. Jendyi will squeeze every drop of learning from this experience. She is an ideal candidate for Emory University Pre-College Program."
At Emory, I made new friends, touched dead body parts, and had fun. I took Anatomy of Movement in which we understood how joints and muscles work together to help us move. We examined human hands, feet, spinal cords, knees and brains, and it was fun. I also lived in Dobbs Hall in which I made five close friends including my roommate. I still communicate with those girls, and I love them. We visited the Aquarium, World Of Coke, Atlantic Station and Decatur. I had lots of freedom and fun. I participated in the talent show with my friends, and that was the best experience I have from being at Emory. Most of the RAs were cool. One of them, Suanu was really cool, and my friends and I talked to him about everything. Being at Emory definitely made me more outgoing. From the crazy trips to CVS and playing ding dong ditch, I grew to love my friends. I also met people from all over the U.S and the world. People were from Brazil, Spain, Jamaica, and more. The people were all really nice and always made me feel welcomed. In those 2 weeks, I grew to love Dooleys, which is Emory money. My friends and I spent $50 in Dooleys on Dominos one night. Hot wings became my best friend! Classes were long but worth it because we always had things to look forward to. If I could go back, I definitely would. I miss my friends, the RAs, the trips to Six Flags, the friendly people and my class.
I am excited to go to Emory because it just seems right for me. What I mean is that Emory is a medical school, and it aligns perfectly with what I see myself doing in the future. I want to be an OBGYN, and being at Emory this summer will definitely help me learn about medical studies and the basics. I will be taking pre-med studies, so by the time I get to college, I'll already have the basics, and I might be able to get a deeper understanding of Medicine. I want to be able to help women and girls learn to be healthy both physically and mentally. I don't want to just be their doctor or OBGYN, but a support system to help them become healthier. I want an actual friendship with my future patients. At Emory, I'll learn to break out of my shell and network. I appreciate being given the opportunity to attend Emory's pre-college program. I am usually a shy person, but by being able to attend Emory, I will become more outgoing and friendly. Those are skills I'll definitely be needing since I plan on becoming an OBGYN. Thanks to Wishbone, I'll be getting this opportunity to travel to Atlanta to Emory University for pre-med studies. I know I'll enjoy this experience this summer. I can't wait to get to Emory and start meeting new people!
