Following the example of Dr. Carson, I have steadfastly pursued a keen interest in the neurological sciences, striving to become a neurosurgeon someday. Interestingly enough, as a neuroscience major here at Johns Hopkins, I was able to understand the neural mechanisms involved in recovery following the drastic procedure Carson described over a decade earlier. I’m sincerely grateful to Dr. Carson for spurring that initial interest. I am currently a senior and extremely enthusiastic about entering medical school in the next year.
Beyond my academic achievements, I have been actively involved in teaching and uplifting youth through educational endeavors in the Baltimore Community. My hope is to become an inspiration for youth just as Dr. Ben Carson has been for me and countless others. Like Dr. Carson, I believe that it is essential that we all find ways to give back to society. Although we have own pursuits and goals, we must remember to make time to contribute to the world around us.
