Keira’s NYLF Medicine Program/ UC Berkeley Camp

Hi Friends and Family, 

I am excited about an opportunity I've been given, to represent my school at the National Youth Leadership Forum for Medicine.  I have been selected to attend a 9-day camp at the University of California, Berkeley in June based upon my exemplary academic achievements and interest in the Medical field. 

Lately, I have been thinking a lot about my future and what I envision it to be. One thing I have known for quite a while now is that I really want to pursue a career in the field of Medicine, and I feel like this opportunity could be a big step in helping me decide the path for my future.  Not only am I focused on my academics, but I am also highly involved in Soccer for my school, as well as in a club/competitive league for the past 6 years, which I also truly enjoy. 

After visiting UC Berkeley this past summer with my family, we casually toured through the campus, it gave me an exciting feeling to know that I could possibly attend this school knowing that UC Berkeley and UC Davis are my top choices for where I want to attend College at this time, especially knowing that I want to pursue a career in Medicine. 

A few things that I'll be doing at the camp will be:
- Visit a medical simulation center to train like a professional and gain hands-on experience in a variety of procedures and technologies. 
- Training and talks from real physicians.
- Engage in outdoor medicine simulations created in Collaboration with Stanford University School of Medicine.
- Tour the Medical School to learn from medical students and staff to share their experience and perspective in Medical School and key success factors. 
- Learn about Medical School application process, and explore the many career options available.

Upon completion of the program/camp, I will also be able to earn 2 Transferable College Credits.

With this invitation to attend this program, also comes with a price tag that I alone with my parents cannot afford all by ourselves in this short amount of time before the camp begins. I am reaching out to all of you humbly asking for your help in achieving my dreams for my future. 

I am very grateful for any help you can give in helping me to attend this program that I have been selected for.  

Many thanks with love¬ Keira
