Camp Friendship is a camp associated with the Arc. At this camp, I was a counselor for a child who had a mental disability. My camper definitely enjoyed his week there because I made sure he was having fun. Since I was able to do this we became friends and we both share the memory of doing so. The other camp I participated in was a diabetic camp held at Camp Soles.
I plan on furthering my research in how mental illnesses affect large communities, with my newly earned M. D/Ph.D. in Psychiatry and Biology. With the knowledge gained from medical school, I intend to give back to my community by opening a practice in my hometown of Gary, Indiana.

I wonder who I would have been if I had not been pushed to the limit and have been taught the values of hard work, education, and persistence. As I progress towards my future, I am eager for more misfortune because I know that from it I can rise and bring others up
Throughout high school I have participated in many different activities and programs, but one of the opportunities I was given I will carry with me forever. As a junior at River Valley I participated in the Marion General Teen Volunteer Program. After interviewing and being placed in the physical therapy unit I took the opportunity to branch out into other areas of the hospital. I soon made my way to the labor and delivery floor where everyday a miracle happened. My duties while volunteering included assisting the nurses during hearing checks, changing diapers, and rocking crying infants in special care.
For the past two years, I have volunteered to babysit my cousins and neighbors. These experiences have greatly assisted in the development of the skills I now hold.

If anything goes wrong, I am held responsible.
