I want to pursue a future that combines my love for medicine and leadership. This summer, I’m planning to do medical research while preparing for my upcoming extracurricular leadership roles for the next school year. I hope to study pre-med in university with a major in nursing and a minor in business, then attend medical school while pursuing an MBA in Healthcare Management. Ultimately, I want to become a hospital system manager to serve my community as both a physician and a leader.
