Hello my name is Jedidiah Jacobson, I am currently a Junior in High School. I was recently nominated to attend the Nation Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine at Stanford University in San Francisco California this summer. I am planning on going into the Navy after college as a Physician’s Assistant. I have had my mind set on the medical field ever since I began volunteering at my local Hospital in the Summer of 2012. Since then I have Logged over 100 hours of volunteerism at the hospital and a total of about 280 total hours volunteering in several organizations throughout my community.
Being nominated to this prestigious program really means alot to me and I would benefit greatly from attending. However, my family is unable to pay for the complete program. I have $400.00 in my savings account from after school jobs that I have worked and am currently working. The tuition of the program is $2695.00 but after Travel and fee’s it is a total cost of about $3000.00. I am reaching out and asking for the help of my community to allow me to attend this great opportunity. I would appreciate any amount of donation from $5 to $500. Your help would mean the world to me.
Not only would a program like this assist me in getting scholarships for college, but it would boost my application into medical school soon after. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity would also give me a hands on look at medicine from the perspective of many different health care professionals that I have observed through my volunteer work.
If you would like to get to know me before you donate, check out my video introduction below, thank you very much for your time and have a great day. Thank you for the thought!
