My Leadership Journey
2019 - Congress for Future Medical Leaders
Since 2019, I have been attending the Congress For Future Medical Leaders – a conference in Boston, Massachusetts. At the Congress, I was grateful to meet Nobel Peace Prize winners, leaders in medicine, and medical school deans.
In addition to meeting so many leaders in medicine and science, I also volunteered and took part in the organizational aspects of the conference and supported the team behind the scenes.
2019 - Summer Camp Counselor
Being a summer camp counselor was one of the most rewarding experiences of the year, because I stepped into role of a mentor as I helped support and supervise campers.
Some of my responsibilities included:
Supervise campers between the ages of four to seven
Organize daily activities
Oversee swim safety
Educate campers about Jewish traditions and customs
2019 - BAStA LOBBYING GROUP (Bay Area Student Activists)
Every spring, BAStA has a lobby day where students from around the bay area give speeches to members and representatives of Congress, and lobby on a variety of topics. In 2019, we focused on bills concerning gun control, and prepared presentations for each representative we talked to. I was able to learn about the many different bills about gun control, as well as how to be an effective lobbyist. This was a major moment in my life because I was able to speak up and use my voice to fight for issues I care about.
