Lindsay's extracurricular activities or hobbies are as follows: softball, including starting varsity in sixth grade; varying forms of volunteering, the most memorable being her summer trip to Haiti; and learning different languages, currently sign language to further her aspirations in the medical field. Despite her neophytic experience in education and science, Lindsay has accomplished the following: second place award at International Science fair from the National Institute on Drug Abuse, which allowed her to present at NIH; a full ride scholarship to West Virginia University, received at International Science fair; and induction to National Honors Society/Cum Laude. Lindsay's ultimate career goal is to become an academic physician, MD-PhD, focusing on childhood neoplasms. To obtain these goals, she hopes to attend an Ivy League undergraduate school and then a MD-PhD program and surgical residency where she can apply, in real world situations, the tools she will have acquired during her education. Lindsay feels that affecting patients at the beginning of their lifespan will have the greatest benefits for her patients’ entire lifetime.
