Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am currently in medical school and love it. I am devoted to
education and learning and am especially interested biology and
future medical technology. I always strive to be caring and
compassionate and hope I can make a difference---my 'mark' on
society--by becoming a doctor.
I really enjoy intellectual endeavors. Acquiring knowledge and
learning more about the world is a big part of my life. I am
forever a skeptic and secularist; therefore, I can safely call
myself an anti-theist. I do not dislike religious people--I have
many friends of many different religious backgrounds--but am
against religion as a fundamental concept and contend the world
would be a much safer, more moral place in its absence.
I understand that last paragraph will turn many people away, but
that's OK. Being kind, compassionate, logical, and reaching out to
others are all things I strive for. For this, I am happy with many
of the moral conclusions I have come to thus far. I am always
working to become a more caring and understanding person.
Humor is also an important aspect of my life. Sarcasm is
In the past year I've become very involved in mindfulness
meditation. It has made a significant impact on my life and I hope
to share it with others. I am currently designing a mindfulness
program to teach medical students how to teach mindfulness to
low-socioeconomic K-12 students, as well as homeless shelters,
healthcare workers, and just the community in general. I hope to
see it flourish within the coming years and spread to other medical
schools across the country.
I thought I'd spend this summary explaining mostly what's in my
head, rather than what I do. However, a brief list of my hobbies
seems appropriate. Besides my academic endeavors, I enjoy spending
time with my friends and family, playing golf, playing poker, video
games exercising, clubbing, snowboarding, as well as pretty much
anything that involves having fun ^_^
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
As aforementioned, I am in medical school. In addition, I also
founded and run an organization called Project Hope--a peer support
and social organization for young adults with chronic illness. I
have been through quite a lot of adversity for someone my age and
created this organization as an outlet for other young adults who
are facing similar adversity. Luckily, I am much more 'medically
stable' now, but aim to use my experiences and what I've learned to
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making lists of things I'm good at.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
This seems like a very odd question that I have a feeling is
extremely subjective. I'm not sure how to answer this without
sounding superficial or conceited. Maybe the first thing people
notice about me is my long, drawn out answers to seemingly simple
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I am a vegetarian and always will be. Don't get me wrong though, I
don't dislike anyone for their choice to follow a more standard
American diet. Considering 97% of the country is omnivorous that
probably wouldn't go over well anyway. Plus, no one likes an
I'm assuming no one wants to read the usual cliche rant about my
likes in books movies or music, although I very much enjoy them
all. If your internal organs are just burning with desire to know,
ask and I'll let you know :)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Really literal lists.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Morality, philosophy, space, future technology, the myriad perils
of the medical field. Especially morality. I spend a significant
amount of time thinking about how to act in certain situations, how
to properly treat people, how to be more compassionate, how to
think, how to learn, etc. Most of my life consists of experience
followed by personal, and hopefully at least somewhat objective,
analysis. I am always thinking about how to be a better person---a
cognitive task I feel like will never end.
On a typical Friday night I am
