Hi, all these essays had a limit of 500 characters! :)Please tell us what led you to select both your anticipated academic area(s) of study and the NYU school / college / program or the Abu Dhabi campus. What interests you most about your intended discipline? Mention any extracurricular or non-school-related activities or experiences that demonstrate your interest.
As I peered into the Petri Dish with the bacterium, I saw the antibiotics being produced in colors of bright violet and crimson red. I never realized that the cure for prevalent diseases could lie within a small organism. I choose to study pre-professional medicine at NYU because I hope using the knowledge of microbiology research and the experiences in the medical field of volunteering at Long Island Jewish Hospital to help save the lives of many people by becoming a doctor.NYU is 'In and of the City' and 'In and of the World.' What does the concept of a global network university mean to you? How do you think studying in New York City, Abu Dhabi, or one of NYU's global sites would change you as a person and equip you to build cross-cultural relationships at NYU and beyond?
A global network university is one that encompasses culture, and diversity. Studying at NYU, would allow to me fully absorb the blends of the various cultures and the diversity from this campus's atmosphere. Having always lived in an area where diversity is present, I understand the necessity of partaking in a "global network", in which I would be able to challenge my values and beliefs to become a more holistic person. If you had the opportunity to bring any person -- past or present, fictional or nonfictional -- to a place that is special to you (your hometown or country, a favorite location, etc), who would you bring and why? Tell us what you would share with that person.
I would bring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. from the past. During his time, he was a freedom figure, whose only goal was to break the forces of segregation and bring about unity. I would bring him to the nation's capital of Washington D.C., the same place where he told his "I have a dream speech" 50 years ago. I want to share with him how his simple, yet powerful words of wisdom rang in the ears of future generations and even though he was not there to see it then, his "dream" did come true.
