As a sophomore, I have just declared for biochemistry and am very excited about pursing medical school. This last summer, I worked in an oncology lab at Georgetown University and have recently started volunteering at Mount Sinai Hospital here in New York. As a Turkish and German speaker, I am looking to do research in Germany this summer, as I hope to work internationally in the future. I am also a Presidential Honors Scholar, working towards the honors track in my major, and an Undergrad Writing Tutor working at the Writing Center. Long- term, I want to be a part of Doctors Without Borders and am therefore considering specializing in burn reconstruction surgery or anesthesiology. Most importantly however, I am a passionate chocolate-chip cookie eater and I spend my free time hitting local thrift shops, doing free yoga, and hanging with friends.
