Hi, my name is Elizabeth and I am a junior at the University of Pittsburgh studying Molecular Biology with minors in Mathematics and Chemistry. My dream is to one day become a physician and practice in the field of pediatric oncology. While at Pitt I have loved being able to take part in community service within the greater Pittsburgh community as well as within the medical community. I have had the opportunity to help beautify Pittsburgh, play with pediatric patients at UPMC Children’s and help build confidence in young girl scouts. I am passionate about serving the local community but I would love to expand my reach even further. Which is why I am so excited to be participating in a MEDLIFE Service Learning Trip to Lima, Peru this March! As a volunteer, I will work closely with medical professionals and community leaders to help deliver medical services, educational workshops and development projects to families in need. In order to best serve those in the community we will be traveling to, I would so appreciate your contribution towards my fundraising goal. I cannot wait for this cultural and educational experience of a lifetime! Thank you so much for your support.
