Humans of FHC: Ayesha Jeddy


“[Health Science Scholar Institute] was kind of like school. They would give us different medical terms to talk about, and we would see recordings of different surgeries, which was interesting. We had panels with other medical students or undergrad students and we asked them for [medical] advice. [We learned] a lot of what we need to do for college, and [how] the SAT really matters–we did a bunch of SAT prep. I thought it was interesting because at the beginning, I did want to go into the medical field. [But] at that point, I realized that I didn’t. It was a lot of work that I wasn’t sure I was completely passionate about. You have to study twelve to fifteen years; I don’t know if I can do that.”
