I began taking piano lessons when I was in the first grade. While in high school I participated in several recitals and performances. To this day, as time permits, I continue to maintain and refine my piano-playing skills, a skill set that only begins reaping rewards after many years of devoted practice. I bring this to your attention, because it is this mentality and determination that I intend to apply toward my post-graduate studies.
From the ages of 10 through 13 I received professional tennis instruction. From the ages of 14 through 18 (my high school years) I played tennis for The Academy of Saint Elizabeth, where I participated in many rigorous tournaments and was the recipient of awards such as Most Valuable Player. Today, after my studies are completed and when time permits, I enjoy playing tennis in order to sustain my skill, and more importantly, to maintain a healthy level of physical fitness.
While a sophomore in high school, I had the opportunity to intern at a Cosmetic Implant dentist’s office. In conjunction with my mother's influence, this experience sowed the seeds for my interest in medicine. My duties included the following: (a) performing administrative tasks, (b) routing incoming telephone calls and providing information to patients, (c) updating and maintaining the dental database as well as patient records, and (d) scheduling and confirming patient appointments. Although these tasks may seem rudimentary, they were significant in the aggregate; the tasks comprised my first front-line experiences to the healthcare profession. After completing this internship, my interest in pursuing a medical career developed.
As an undergraduate I sought experiences that enabled me to explore my interest in medicine. In the summers of 2004 and 2006 I secured summer internships that offered the experiences I desired, vis-a-vis patient interaction. As a medical intern my tasks included (a) executing computerized insurance pre-certification procedures, (b) preparing patient charts and documenting patient anatomical dimensions, (c) observing major and minor surgeries in the office operating room, (d) verifying and confirming pending insurance claim payments, and (e) maintaining patient records and providing those records to appropriate medical professionals. Each of these experiences have been valuable and only reinforced my decision to become a doctor.
Shortly after my first session as a Medical Intern, I decided to voluntarily participate in the Mount Sinai School of Medicine’s Mini-Med School. This was a public biomedical-science education program consisting of five 3-hour lectures designed for individuals who have contemplated attending medical school. Mini-Med School lectures focused on basic sciences and broad medical science subject areas including, but not limited to, the skeletal system, oncology, and neurology. More broadly, the lectures were structured to provide participants with a better understanding of important scientific discoveries by incorporating the physiology of human health and disease. My participation in this program was attributed to my determination of developing a greater understanding of [then] current issues pertaining to the biomedical sciences.
In December of 2005 I became Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (“CPR”) and Automated External Defibrillator (“AED”) certified. This course entailed 3.5 hours of adult CPR training and 4.25 hours of child & infant CPR training. Additionally, the course included AED training for victims of sudden cardiac arrest. Through this course, I developed the wherewithal necessary to save a human life by addressing breathing and cardiac emergencies.
In order to fully enhance my scholastic abilities, I joined the Montclair State University Biology Club, which was chartered in 2005. The primary goal of the organization was to familiarize students with biology-related issues through (1) hosting a series of lectures by distinguished professionals such as optometrists, chiropractors, & general surgeons, and (2) exposing students to human cadavers for the purpose of acquiring a better understanding of human anatomy via the comparison of healthy vs. unhealthy organs. In addition to acquiring a greater familiarity with biology, I had the privilege of serving as Treasurer, and Vice President. My responsibilities included maintaining an accurate accounting of the club's financial status, and managing and executing the aforementioned events. These positions enabled me to further refine my leadership skills.
To develop friendships and participate in social activities I joined Sigma Sigma Sigma (a national sorority) during my sophomore year of college. Tri-Sigma’s purpose is to engage in philanthropic projects that benefit the community, e.g. The Robbie Page Memorial, a memorial whose purpose is to produce playgrounds for disadvantaged children. As my Chapter's Fundraising Chairperson, my duties entailed organizing and executing events such as bake sales, the Battle of the Bands, Secret Admirer Day, and the collection of funds discarded in the public fountain. As Public Relations Chair my obligations entailed advertising sorority events, managing inter-organization communications, effecting press releases, etc... The position of Public Relations Chair aided in the development of my social interaction skills and drove me to refine my leadership skills.
It has been (and remains to be) necessary for me to subsidize my college education by maintaining a position in the hospitality industry. The industry has served to satisfy my financial needs, admittedly at the expense of my grade point average. My duties in the hospitality industry include: (a) serving food & beverages, (b) addressing the complaints of upset customers, (c) setting up and breaking down table arrangements, (d) mixing and serving drinks, and (e) performing liquor-inventory checks. Tangentially, my position has helped me refine my communication skills and fine-tune my ability to professionally manage situations involving unhappy patrons. These refinements shall enable me to more adequately serve my future patients.
