Fugitive slave, abolitionist, entrepreneur, feminist, intellectual, and Rochester luminary Frederick Douglass said “Man’s greatness consists in his ability to do and the proper application of his powers to things needed to be done. You’re showing us your “ability to do” in this application.
Please describe also how you apply your “powers to things needed to be done.” Explain why you want to join our Rochester community of independent thinkers who create positive change and make the world “ever better.”
601 Elmwood Ave, Rochester, NY 14642 is the most immediate reason why I am beyond excited to be afforded the opportunity to attend the University of Rochester. The Golisano Children’s Hospital is the location where I plan to begin my journey of becoming an undergraduate Pediatric Medicine Researcher, and then further as a Pediatric Physician.
There many cruel wrinkles we must go through living within our world, being victimized by one’s own health should never be one as we must deal with the outside complications simultaneously. As the daughter of a man who lost his life to cancer, it is the least I can do to at least make an effort to defeat this menace for those who have yet to taste what life is all about. Golisano has a plethora of incredible opportunities for me to flourish within what I have been thriving to reach as an aspiring Pediatric Physician. I dream of being able to tell a child that they are cancer free, or stably healthy at the least.
Coming from an International Baccalaureate background, I have realized that global change can start in an intense classroom or a single address – and branch out from there. The Golisano Children’s Hospital is the perfect, centralized location for me to take as the first stage of a much longer journey. Having the opportunity to enter the research world, and doing what my life goals require both short and long term, would both be possible, and I would be honored to start right on Elmwood Avenue.
