This program opened my eye to numerous opportunities in different fields of medicine and in different approaches in working in the medicine industry. With this interest, I plan to also become a part of a medical facility management team. In the future, I hope to pursue my dream of becoming a doctor by attaining an MD, and to double major in Managerial Economics.

It can be easier sometimes with one person, absolutely. As someone who is both polyamorus and queer, I feel like parts of my family and large parts of my community marginalize me for being different because society has told them to.
I want to change that. Since I will be studying for an entire year in Prague, I will have the opportunity to attend the annual Mezipatra, an international film festival in November that screens around a hundred top-ranking films on lesbian, bisexual, transsexual and queer themes.

If this sounds like you, then please share your story. Recall the most cherished memory with your father figure. When a child is born, he or she is given a birth certificate, which provides information such as name, date and place of birth, but most importantly it provides the names of the parents of the child. My father left when I was one year old and I will soon be turning 17; I did the math and found that for about days he has neglected me.
He was able to sleep nights without knowing whether or not I was dead or alive. In those days I learned how to walk, talk, and I became a strong young man without the provider of my Y Chromosome because he is nothing more to me than that.

I, however, have found that grit can come from anywhere.

I know the difficulty that latinos face in this day and age I can envision assisting other young latinos achieving their dreams.

Consequently I would like to be part of that chance that can foster the growth of future success. How did you manage to overcome this obstacle? What did you learn and how did you grow from it?

I was a very normal child, asking for chicken nuggets and looking at mom and dad any time I was scared or unsure of something. As I've grown I've learned to fight my own monsters but I now also battle the ones that frighten my parents, the monsters of a world that they weren't born into. Monsters of doubt and disadvantage that try to keep them stuck in a cycle of poverty; thriving in a world that casts them to the side and a society that, with its current political climate, doesn't welcome them with the warmest hello.
