I am currently a junior at Cristo Rey Jesuit College Preparatory School of Houston. I am a member of the National Honor Society and student ambassador. I am also part of my school soccer team for the past two years. Outside of School, I manage to also keep myself busy by being part of a soccer team and volunteer at my local church. In addition, I am a peer leader at Mount Carmel Church for the Confirmation class of 2019. In the future, my dreams are to attend The University of Texas at Austin and study pre-med. Afterward, I want to attend medical school and become a pediatrician. I love working with kids and this profession will allow me to take care of kids and making sure they receive the care they need. To help broaden my knowledge of this career I am planning of volunteering at MD Anderson throughout the year of 2019. I know that becoming a pediatrician takes a lot of dedication and hard work. For this reason, I always push myself to do better in my everyday life situations. Right now my GPA is a 3.9 and my favorite classes are AP English and AP Spanish because they both expose me to new ideas inspiring me to be unique.
Expanding my knowledge is very important to me because I am always open to learning new customs which I can truly encounter and indulge myself in through this high school summer program. I want to be able to experience a culture that is similar to my own, but in another sense seems very different. This will help me appreciate more cultures and even participate in their traditions. I look forward to the opportunity of working on my language skills which will greatly benefit me in my future. Becoming a doctor is now only about brain knowledge but also knowing how to interact with patients. For this reason, I want to learn to appreciate a different culture and expand my Spanish skills. Spain has always been a country that seems so inspiring and I want to partake in such a sight that will greatly move me in an astonishing way.
I would be very grateful if you can help sponsor my participation in the CIEE High School Study Abroad Program . I have applied and got fortunate to receieve a Schoolarship. However, I still need to contribute 2,150 to fully pay for my tuition. Your donations of $25,$50,$75 or $100 would help me meet my goal in being able to take part of this opportunity of a limetime. I will forever be grateful for your support.
