This paper explains that, as a refuge from war-torn Liberia living in camp in Ghana, the author volunteer for the Red Cross and organized the Community Health Association Help Center. After coming to the US, the author relates his academic career majoring in human biology, his work experiences and his volunteer work in the Nuclear Medicine department. The paper states that the author's decision to choose Nuclear Medicine as a career is the culmination of his health care skills and personality; however, without the financial support of the scholarship, it will be very hard for him to continue his studies due to financial difficulty caused by the death of his aunt who had been helping him.

From the Paper:

"I volunteered in the Nuclear Medicine Department on my days off and the experience deepened my understanding of the United States healthcare system. While working together with the CHS pharmacists, including CHS Neonatal Intensive Care pharmacists, I have had the privilege of assisting them prepare medications, which have contributed to helping countless patients. I have had the opportunity to see scientific knowledge into practice and to perform a key role within medical healthcare settings. The endeavour strengthened my desire to pursue a health care specialty.
"By the end of 2007, another major change in my life happened. My 39-year-old aunt, who had been my childhood guardian, died of undiagnosed cancer, leaving her three small children without a mother. As challenging and tragic as it was to cope with the death of my beloved aunt, the personal experience ultimately led to my discovery of a career that would allow me to pursue my dream of saving lives. Despite all of my experiences as a volunteer in the Mercer Hospital Nuclear Medicine Department, I believe that if my aunt had known about the life saving procedure which rapidly and accurately detects the presence of disease other than X-rays and other imaging procedures, she would have been alive today."
