Jessica's NYLF: Medicine Fund

Hi, my name is Jessica Webber and I am currently a junior at Morris Community High School in Morris, Illinois. I have been working hard to get accepted into a great college that will eventually lead to medical school. I have always had a great interest in science, and as I started to explore the medical field I became immensely intrigued by the human anatomy. This interest soon turned into the dream of becoming a forensic pathologist. In order to become a forensic pathologist I will need to put in 8 years of school and roughly 6 years of residency after high school (14 years, yikes!), but I have the commitment, dedication, and scholarship abilities to not stray away from my goal. I have recently been invited to go to the National Youth Leadership Forum of Medicine for a week this summer. I am beyond honored to be invited to this program! Here I will be able to "utilize my personal and academic strengths and skills in direct, hands-on medical and health care activities, true-to-life medical simulations and unique and stimulating role-playing exercises with peers and medical experts, as I explore and match my interest and passion for a future in medicine and health care." The NYLF of medicine will open up many opportunities for me, that I would be blessed to experience. As I cannot stress enough, I am very passionate for the medical field, and I am willing to do whatever I need to in order to reach my goals. I feel this program will lead me a step closer to doing just that. Unfortunately it does cost a lot of money, and my family is not in a position to take on this extra financial responsibility. I would greatly appreciate the help so I can attend this program that will help me pursue my goal to be successful in this field. Thank you for taking your time to read this, anything that you can contribute is greatly appreciated and will help better my future.
