Hi everyone, my name is Lee, and I could use your help making my dreams and visions a reality.
I was born and raised in Arizona, until the age of ten (2006). My family and I decided to move to Israel for the following 11 years. In high school, I was ranked second place in the national Bio-Med project in association with the Technion University regarding a medical device I have created. In the Israeli army (which the service is mandatory when reaching the age of 18), I served for three years as an advanced Medic (Sargent) training doctors and paramedics with regards to trauma procedures, filed hospitals and tactical medicine as well as serving as a combat soldier in the borders. Over that time period, I have successfully certified dozens of personnel, in addition to receiving a Certificate of excellence (in combat) and the Independence Day Certificate of Excellence (Military school of Medicine).
Ever since a young age, I was always fascinated with animals and was the only kid to watch National Geographic and Discovery channel instead of kids tv shows, extending my knowledge and affinity towards medicine as well as technology. In every situation in which I noticed a problem, I saw it as an opportunity to solve it and make the system better. I believe that the bigger the problem, the bigger the opportunity, and the merger between my previous knowledge in technology as well as entering the medical field, I have big plans and dreams to make medicine more advanced and patient care better. Your donations will be considered as investments, helping me advance and exceed my big goals.
I currently volunteer at UCLA Santa Monica Hospital for the past year, investing up to 18 hours a week, as well as being in charge of 3 volunteer departments.
Although I have been accepted for partial financial aid, there are still many expenses not yet covered for the next years of pre-med and med-school. Here are the major expenses I still need to cover:
- rent (LA is very expensive)
- food off campus
- other expenses (insurance, vehicle maintenance)
I would greatly appreciate any donations so I can focus 100% on my studies and get the most of my education. My lifelong endeavors include becoming a Surgeon, and the pinnacle of medical technology and innovation.
