Future career aspirations: I intend to pursue an MD/PhD program in becoming a public health scholar. I want to discover a myriad of health knowledge through diverse research and study programs to scrutinize cross-cultural and international health issues, tackle pressing contemporary challenges, and fulfill my insatiable curiosity. I enjoy learning every single topic in the public health area because it brings me troves of newfound therapeutics and medication and motivates me through the brave path that scientists have gone through to combat challenges and cure diseases. I treasure every academic opportunity and will apply every piece of knowledge to medical development and therapeutic initiative in the future.
Top 3 goals for your time abroad: Studying abroad gives me a chance to gain precious social and intellectual values. It is like a gateway taking me to experiences that are beyond reality. It is like a dream coming true and I cannot hold my thoughts from flowing with beautiful imagination. First of all, I would love to explore the cultural and social beauty of Scotland. I would love to try new foods, discover restaurants, and observe the daily routine of Scottish people. Secondly, I desire to see spectacular landscapes that will soothe my soul just by their fresh air and natural beauty. Last but not least, I cherish the opportunity to acquire knowledge at a new campus with new friends. I will forever hold in my heart this amazing experience with classmates and professors. I love to immerse myself in a new environment and to step on a new land that exudes the air of kindness, optimism, and intellect. I am ready to write a new journey of my life that is replete with fascinating experiences, giving, happiness, and wisdom.
