“Effort”, is the word that defines my life.
"Do my best to be the best" has been motto of my life. I was a Shorttrack skater when I was young. I started this sport to train my body and mind, but soon after I started skating it became my life as I fell in love with the sport and dreamed of winning the gold medal. It was not easy for me to skate faster than others because at the time, I was smaller and shorter than them. But dreaming of winning the Olympic medal, I worked really hard. I thought if I try harder than the other players I could overcome my disadvantage of being small. I came to practice first and left the practice last. Due to my efforts, my performance improved greatly, becoming one of the best skaters in the city and I thought I had a great future ahead of me as an athlete. However, during one practice session I was severely injured and I had to give up on my dream. I was desperate and depressed. My father thought it would help me to start again if I moved to a new environment, so he took me along with him to United States when he was offered a job at the University of Washington as an exchange professor.
In a new country with a new setting I was able to rebound from desperation and I came to realize that I had to make new plans since I couldn’t skate anymore. Therefore, I decided to study hard and become academically competent. I thought education would open up many options for me in the future. At first, it was very challenging due to language barrier and cultural differences, but I worked really hard to overcome the challenges I faced. I put great effort into studying and because of that I was able to do well in school. I actually enjoyed studying. To me studying was very similar to sports. It was fair. The more I try the better I become. After experiencing both the sports and academics, I came to realize that effort was the key to every kind of success. I came to believe that no matter where I am and what kind of obstacles I face, if I face it with effort there is nothing to be afraid of. Since then, I have had strong faith in effort and lived my life doing my very best every day, believing that effort will take me to where my dream is.
My path to "Medicine"
My pursuit of Medicine started from yearning for a "White Coat". I thought the white coat that physicians were wearing looked very cool. The symbolic meaning of the white coat was very compatible to medicine. The purity and loftiness of the white coat were what define medicine. That is how I started to pursue field of medicine, to wear the white coat. But as I start to experience various kinds of volunteer services and research that are related medicine, my journey became more serious and concrete.
In order find out what medicine is and to be well prepared for a medical career, I engaged in many kinds of activities that were related to medicine. When I was freshman in college, I worked as a physical therapist in a rehabilitation program. The program was designed for patients who were injured and who had a hard time walking and moving, with the program designed to help them recover from their physical disability, so they can walk and move by themselves without the help of someone else and wheelchair. I worked closely with many patients and through interaction and conversation with the patients I learned an important lesson. Namely, that some of the patients who were seriously injured due to illness and accidents told me that they thought about giving up their lives. They told me that it was not easy for them to overcome the disabilities. But instead of giving up, they decided to overcome their obstacle. As I heard their hardships, I came to realize and understand their pain and desperation that they had to go through. Moreover, I came to appreciate and respect the courage that the patients have shown.
There were other activities that I was involved with. I was the Vice-President of the Rotary Club from my school. As the Vice-President, I coordinated volunteer activities with my major accomplishment as Vice-President including donating medical equipment to children's hospital in Costa Rica.
Moreover, I was a teacher for the inmates from San Quentin prison, which is one of the largest prisons in the USA. Inmates were studying for GED and I helped them with English and Math. Not only that, I was also a teacher at the St Cornellius School in city of Richmond. Most of the students there were from low income families and they were not well educated. I taught them different kinds of subjects they were struggling with and was a mentor for the students.
After graduating from college, I volunteered at a radiology department of MD Anderson.
By experiencing different kinds of activities, I have met so many kinds of people and because of that, I have been able to develop strong interpersonal skills, learning how to talk to people and how to interact with them effectively. I also learned to treat people equally no matter who they are and where they are from. I also learned that there are always those who need help in different parts of the world so I decided to live a life for people who are in need for help.
To be well prepared for studying medicine, I majored in psychology. I thought a lot about which major would help me be best prepared for studying medicine, at one point considering biology, but I thought that I would have enough time to study biology once I was enrolled in medical school. As a result, I came to conclusion that majoring in psychology would be the best preparation for medical school. I expected that by majoring in psychology, I would be able to learn and know about the people in general. In other words, I wanted to understand people themselves before understanding their diseases.
By majoring in psychology, I was able to study people in many different aspects. In clinical psychology, I learned about different types of mental disorders, and hormones that play an important role in brain. In developmental psychology meanwhile, I learned about how people develop to become who they are, whilst in personality psychology, I learned about how genetics and parenting play different roles in forming one's personality. In social psychology, I studied many different theories about how people tend to behave in different kinds of situations and in the stigma and prejudice class, I looked at how people form stigmas and prejudice against others and that most prejudice is formed unconsciously. The human brain prefers to have ideas that are definite, so it is the brain that forms the prejudice but not the will.. My deep understanding about people and how they behave, and think will help me to become a physician who will understand what patients are going through, not only physically, but also emotionally, and to be a physician who will sympathize with a patient's pain. By forming close relationships with patients, I want to become a physician who can motivate patients to be very active in the process of treatment. I believe the strong will of the patients can play a positive role in treatment. I want to become a physician who stands by their patients until they fully recover from their illness. I want to become a physician who never leaves his patient behind.
Among the experiences that I had, my experience at MD Anderson as a researcher was one of the most memorable moments. During my stay in the best cancer center in the world, I learned a lot of lessons. Moreover, this experience helped me to form the concrete vision about what kind of a doctor that I want to be. I also learned that medical care has no borders and is achieved through teamwork from different departments of the hospital. In addition, I learned about the ideal hospital system by observing how the hospital is operated. I also learned a lot about cancer itself by participating in breast cancer research.
The other thing that I was very impressed with is their culture of cooperation. To help the hospital and its patients, companies and workers and even the patients donated their money for the hospital. A great portion of their income came from public donations and there were a lot of volunteers in most departments of the hospital who helped the physicians and patients without any financial compensation.
Physicians and researchers showed cooperation during the process of diagnosis and treatment. Physicians from different departments had frequent joint meeting and they were able to communicate effectively in order to find out most suitable plan for the patients. To achieve their motto " Making Cancer History" all of the members of the hospital became one.
I realized that curing the disease is not about an individual's struggle but it is about cooperation and communication.
Another thing that I realized from MD Anderson is that medicine has no borders. The cancer center was comprised of physicians from all over the world. Even though there were cultural and ethnical differences, these were not a barrier for them as long as they were competent physicians in their field of medicine. What mattered most was the skill and intelligence of the physicians but not their skin color or ethnicity.
During my path into medicine, I was involved in many great research opportunities. When I was majoring in psychology at UC Berkeley, I was a research assistant for Professor Allison Harvey who is an expert in sleep. At her "Sleep Clinic", I was involved with insomnia research including interviewing patients who were suffering from a sleep disorder. I also monitored and collected data when the patients were taking polysonmography.
Moreover, I was a research assistant for Professor Dacher Keltner, whose main research topic is emotion and social interaction. His lab focused on the social functions of emotion, arguing that emotions enable individuals to respond adaptively to the problems and opportunities that define human social living.
After graduating from college, I went to MD Anderson to work as a researcher. My professor was a Chinese who graduated from Capital Medical University in Beijing. Our lab focused on dissecting mechanisms of resistance to targeted immuno therapies, and designing counteracting strategies to make patients respond better to anti-cancer therapies. My research topic was about "Lapatinib" which is the orally active drug for breast cancer and other solid tumors. It is dual tyrosine kinase inhibitor which interrupts the HER2 and epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) pathways. It is used for the treatment of patients with advanced or metastatic breast cancer whose tumors overexpress HER2. The main goal of my research was to find the mechanism behind the resistance to Lapatinib, My co-authored research paper was ultimately published in "Molecular Cancer Therapeutics". The title of the article is “ Resistance that can be effectively reversed by a p110alpha-Selective PI3k inhibitor”. This article was published in January of 2018.
Currently, I am a researcher in Severance Hospital in Korea. I work in the Department of Neurosurgery where my main research topic is Moyamoya disease, focusing on the cognition of patients with Moyamoya disease. The ultimate goal of my research is to find a correlation between social cognition and Moyamoya disease.
After experiencing different kinds of research, I came to realize that research is a "key" in medicine. Therefore, I decided to become a physician who focuses not only on clinical medicine but also on research. Using my background in Psychology, I would like to become a neurologist who will give hope to patients who are suffering from a degenerative brain disease.

Dear Sirs, Madams
I am interested to apply for a Bachelor’s Degree Program in Medicine MBBS starting in 2018. I am going to be a school graduate in June 2018 in A levels, from The Westminster School, Dubai and hold O levels and AS level transcripts
The O levels and A level program formed the basis of my perseverance towards achieving an in-depth knowledge in the field of Science –. As a part of my course I studied various subjects such as Maths, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, English, Global Perspective, ICT in my O levels as well as Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Physics in my A levels
Upon receiving this acknowledgment of my work I would like to carry on my penchant for Medicine, as this field is gaining increasing importance, in all aspects. There is an ample scope to prove one’s ability, competence and intelligence in the MBBS course.
Besides the college academics I was actively involved in the extra-curricular activities. The driving force behind all this was my aim to develop all the facets of my personality. I garnered the skill of judicious allocation of time and energy. I do not feel that the marks I scored are the sole indicators of my understanding of the subject.
I have achieved many medals and trophies in sports which puts me ahead on my own personal development in fitness. I believe sports and fitness is a necessity for every student as this doesn’t only keeps the person fit but also stimulates the brain to be more active.
Some of my achievements have been receiving a trophy in school for football. Moreover, I was the captain of my school’s sport’s team. I believe I’ve got what it takes to be a good leader and I also look forward in working in groups or teams. I always take my whole team or group forward together regardless of race, religion or ethnic. I always love to help those who are in need for special help.
Also I have participating in awareness campaigns as well as helping people with special needs. My work has helped me develop a thorough insight into return to the academic world for further growth. It has given me the confidence to pursue a Bachelor’s degree and also kindled a desire to do research. This aim with open prospects has given me constant incentive to improve myself and to gain more knowledge.
Today I perceive that life for me has been a process of conscious evolution. An integral part of this growth has been the value system imbibed in me by my parents, teachers and mentors and an immense liking for science. As I embark upon a new stage of my life, I believe that an undergraduate study will provide a milestone in my career along with invaluable experiences that will allow me to become a successful, innovative professional and assist in accomplishing my goals. Ten years from now, I envisage myself as a full-fledged medical practitioner or in a campaign helping the ones in need.
My decision to pursue undergraduate studies in China is underscored by my desire to be a part of the undergraduate program at your institution. The pioneering works going on at the Medical department, which include the MBBS perfectly match with the field of my interest. The interdisciplinary nature has convinced me in taking this decision as it is the ideal choice for an exciting practitioner career. At the same time, I am confident of contributing originally to the ongoing work at your department. By working under the guidance of distinguished faculty, I shall certainly be able to exploit my potential to the fullest.
The medicine faculty web site revealed very strong interest of mine to the medicine course. This has strengthened my resolve to study at Huazhong University of Science and Technology. I am confident that the erudite faculty will make my learning experience extraordinary. If I get the opportunity to be a part of that intellectually stimulating environment, I am sure my talents will be put to optimal use.
I am confident that overall opportunity to study in China will broaden my horizons and give me an opportunity to gain world class education and help me become an excellent world citizen.
I would therefore, feel obliged to be able to secure admission in your prestigious university. I am sure that I will match all the credentials and will be able to maintain high standards at your university.
