In the next ten years I hope to be actively working on research technologies that improve the condition of the Alzheimer patient. Alzheimer is a debilitation and dehumanizing disease and I have a passion for working with a group focused on ridding the world of it. I hate seeing what Alzheimer does to a human being, but what I love is watching those affected by it make progress towards living happy, if not entirely normal lives. Nothing would thrill me more than spending my life working at preserving the memory of Alzheimer patients; essentially restoring their humanity.

To achieve my goal, I intend to participate in research Internships whenever possible. This sharpens my data collecting, and interpretation skills as a budding scientist; creating a platform from which my educational and professional career can propel.

I aim to attend conferences on a regular basis, and network at business meetings to build my network. By interacting with students and professionals from all over the globe I hope to develop an innovative mind.

Another goal I have is to demonstrate my willingness to apply for and win scholarships. Besides the stress graduate school puts on demonstrating a keen interest in research, it is essential also to show initiative in seeking funding. It is no wonder then why I applied for this scholarship. It helps to cover the cost of tuition at the undergraduate level and also helps to boost my competitiveness in earning a spot in graduate school to become an Alzheimer Researcher.
