Career Goals: Medicine (surgeon, a cardiologist, pediatrician, or bio-medical engineer) My goal in life cannot be expressed in one sentence. I have too many ambitions that I am worried that I will not be able to fulfill them all. My priority, however, is to pursue a career in medicine, whether it be as a surgeon, a cardiologist, pediatrician, or bio-medical engineer
Years at Echo Hill: 5 summers as a camper, 1 as a counselor
There are not enough superlatives to describe the greatness that Echo Hill exudes. There is an abundance of positive emotions that I hold for Echo Hill. Growing up as a child, the presence of a solid summer camp can greatly influence the development of child in all aspects of life, whether it be improving social skills or other life lessons. Personally, the experiences at Echo Hill have molded me and developed me into the adult that I am today. Camp has taught me that no matter where you turn, if you do so with a smile and an open heart, you will always be met with companionship and comfort. My counselors helped teach me about maturity, responsibility, compassion, and how to be a man. Echo Hill is much more than a summer camp to occupy your child for several weeks. It is a summer camp where you can be assured that your child will develop and meet new people and learn new skills. There is always a place for a camper, no matter their personality or mannerisms. Each year that I return, my experiences of that summer always seem to somehow trump the preceding summer's experiences. I love Echo Hill, and it is one of the most important places in the world to me.
