To explore my interests of medicine and understand the different career options, I rotated departments<br>at the Metropolitan Hospital such as the OR for Surgery and Dentistry, shadowing the doctors and<br>interacting with patients. I attended lectures about hospital rules, patient care, and the fields of<br>science. In addition, I volunteered in the Psychiatric department, reading books and coloring with the<br>children in the outpatient area.

Although this is a non-paid job, this opportunity has given me the experience to understand office<br>work. I learned how to make and transfer calls to the other departments of the facility. I had to<br>learn how to greet people and give directions to trucks that would come to make deliveries for<br>the organization. In addition, I helped scan papers and organize them into the computer folders.<br>Sometimes I helped organize the materials around the office to make things to more clean and<br>welcoming.

As a current senior in high school (the Baccalaureate School for Global Education) and coming close to<br>finishing the International Baccalaureate program, I helped tutor a junior named Sharufa in my school.<br>Every Saturday, I would meet with her and help her in any grey areas she is uncertain about or is not<br>informed. For instance, I helped my student conduct research by analyzing sources for a 4,000 word<br>extended essay, which I had completed in my junior year. Also, I helped her create a college list of<br>where to apply once she goes into senior year and gave her information about the college process<br>such as about the personal essay and grade requirements.
