Extracurricular activities essay - "Health internship"


Please briefly elaborate on one of your extracurricular activities or work experiences. (150 word limit.)

By allowing myself to realize a greater connection to the rest of humanity, in the respect that health is a major essence of the human experience, as well as excavating deeper into my own interests, my experience interning in Dr. Loeser’s lab at Wake Forest was by far the most remarkable.

Being in an environment that was exploding with inquiry, analysis, and discovery, all while in close collaboration with some of the most intelligent and colorful individuals I had ever met, was truly enthralling. Not only was it because of the amazing science involved, but also because of the sense of belonging I felt to this extraordinary group whose valiant cause to unearth the mysteries behind arthritis proved all-encompassing that I kept wanting to come back. Knowing that a career may lead me to a similar atmosphere and ethereal feeling is motivation enough to pursue such a career.
