Let's Talk Event & Final ClubMed Meeting!

Gift of Life Michigan's campaign titled "Let's Talk" aims to foster discussion about organ donation among the minority communities that are in need of the most transplants, yet have the lowest donation rates. Above is the kick-off video for the campaign. Please watch this video and share the message with your friends and family! It is crucial that organ donation becomes something that people from all walks of life are able to participate in. The number of people from multicultural communities who need a transplant is unexpectedly high–and these communities are often reluctant to become donors. On average, twenty people pass away each day while waiting for a transplant, and half of these are minorities.Here's the link to the video: https://bit.ly/2QshZip. At the kick-off event I attended this past Thursday, I learned that Gift of Life is holding several discussion circles throughout the summer among minority groups–such as with the African-American, Arab-American, and the Hispanic population. In addition, Troy High alum and FOX 2 host Roop Raj was the emcee of said kick-off event! I've attached a few pictures from there.




One of my family’s close friends is getting married next year, so we attended the engagement party. We had a great time, and it was nice to get a little break from school-related activities. Here is a picture from the event below!


May is also a very big month in terms of wrapping up clubs for the year. We had our last ClubMed meeting of the school year where we had a pizza party and watched Dr. Mike! I am super honored to be ClubMed's Vice President for the 2019-2020 school year!




For my AP US History class, we had to research and do a presentation on the 2000’s. Part of the project was also to dress up as how people did in that decade. You can see how I dressed up in the picture below with one of my friends!
