I attended high school at Greater New York Academy before moving to Huntsville, Alabama to pursue higher education. At Oakwood University, I studied English Literature and minored in Chemistry with a premedical concentration. Graduating in May 2014, I then set my sights on attending medical school. Moving back to New York in 2014, I am applying to Osteopathic Medical schools for the Fall 2015 cycle and I am excited to join the field of medicine.
While in college, I held a job as an organic chemistry lab instructor and tutored, informally, general chemistry, analytical chemistry, and various English courses like grammar, American literature, and Elizabethan literature. My favorite of the set was organic chemistry because I was not only able to help teach the students the subject matter but, as a lab instructor, I also graded assignments and experiments.
My philosophy about teaching is that "Patience is Key." Everyone is born with the mental capacity to succeed and so no one should get frustrated if he or she doesn't get "it" as fast as another person. Patience and persistence will always get you there.
Outside of academics, I enjoy reading mystery novels and even keeps a blog of my own writings. I love playing and listening to music, even being a part of my college's drum line. Friendliness and interpersonal skills are key. I realize that because I am no different from anyone else, I should give back to those who need help for I never know when the tables will turn and I will be the one requiring assistance.
