As with most kids, school has been the dominant past-time for 12 years and I'm not sure I'm ready to leave it all behind and jump into the real world. I'm frightened by the notion of leaving my high school behind and watching my path diverge from that of my friends as they jet off to pursue and achieve their respective futures. I was born and raised in Sydney, Australia, but for two years in middle school my family lived as expatriates in Qatar where I was lucky enough to attend the American School of Doha. That was my first and only exposure to the US school system, but I fell in love with my school where I was granted unbelievable opportunities and met so many incredible people. Back in Australia, I'm jealous of the traditions and fanfare of the Cap-and-Gown US Graduation, so being able to experience the Senior Photoshoot was a small dream come true. At university, I hope to pursue Medicine and a specialty in Anaesthetics. My ultimate dream is to attend Harvard University and, later, Harvard Medical School in Boston because I've been enchanted with the notion of American College life. I also attended a ten-day Leadership Conference with a focus on Medicine and Healthcare at Harvard Medical School last summer where I made friends for life and strengthened my aspirations. However, I will most likely end up attending a home-grown Aussie university which will also be a wondrous adventure. Undoubtedly, the HSC exam will be tough and stressful, but I know I will thrive surrounded by the people I love. I can't wait to experience the unforgettable final chapter of my high school experience.
