Growing up in India, I had seen the most earnest acts of gratitude being bestowed on my parents by their patients upon successful knee replacements. In order to emulate their achievements, I embarked on a journey to volunteer at various hospitals, both in India and in America, and gain the generosity gifted to my parents. Hence, at the NYU College of Arts and Science I plan to major in Biology and be extensively involved in research so as to create a strong base for my future in Medicine.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?
I was sent to America in order to be exposed to the cultural variety that was missing in the Indian society. NYU being the multicultural epitome of the United States will perfectly suit such needs. According to my parents, their contacts with people of such a wide variety of nationalities and cultures allowed them to be as successful. Hence, studying in a global university will allow me to gain different perspectives on issues, befriend a multitude of people and prepare me for the real world.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.
Ever since I was used to being shunned out of my father's surgical room due to the lack of sterilized scrubs, I have denied such rigidness in a physician's profession. Dr. House, the protagonist in the TV series House, M.D., on the other hand enters the operation theater without adequate sterilization and is still a reputed doctor. Hence, I wish to invite Dr. House to my father's operation theater, and have him convince my father in order to remove any grudge I hold against this situation.
what do you guys think about the answers overall?
