Driving Philosophies:

2) Enhance my knowledge of the world.

I am working on creating a life that will allow me to treat patients, conduct research, engage in global and public health efforts, and continue to be involved in matters of policy and the exploration of the role of entrepreneurship in science, medicine, and technology.

From Michael’s LinkedIn Page:

I look at everything in life as an experience that can be transformed into growth. My life philosophy is to (a) reduce the suffering of others and (b) enhance my knowledge of the world. If I can use my life to do these two things, I will find myself fulfilled. It’s no secret that humanity faces a myriad of seemingly insurmountable challenges, including disease, poverty, intolerance, and inequality (to name a few). These challenges are quite a bit to tackle but, in the words of John Green, “What is the point of being alive if you don’t at least try to do something remarkable?”

Akin to Robert Frost, I tend to take the path less traveled by. I yearn for adventure and unique encounters. I am interested in gathering a diverse set of experiences to craft myself into a well-rounded individual who is prepared for the multi-dimensional challenges of the 21st century. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in the Sociology of Health from Temple University and will be pursuing an MSc at the London School of Economics in September. My background in sociology equips me with a fuller perspective that complements my coursework in the natural sciences and my passion for health, medicine, and relevant matters in the realms of politics and economics.

I am working on creating a life that will allow me to treat patients, conduct research, engage in global and public health efforts, and continue to be involved in matters of policy and the exploration of the role of entrepreneurship in science, medicine, and technology. We must face the world’s problems head-on and with full recognition of our duty to work not only to better the world in the here and now, but also to create a world that we can feel proud to leave behind. Remember, there are people counting on you that you haven’t even met yet.
