I was a volunteer at Kapi’olani for 9 months and experienced shadowing patients who had a range of diagnosis including osteosarcoma, cerebral palsy, autism spectrum disorders, but one case that sparked my passion was a child with encephalitis.

If I were to tell the truth (which I try to make it a habit to do), I would assert that I spent the last two days considering our class conversation without formulating much in terms of coherent impressions or judgments.
