My name is Naqash Akhtar , and I am currently a junior at The Faran Institute of Technology. I have been accepted into a study abroad program in Stockholm , Sweden for this summer from July 26th to september 28th. This amazing program focuses on public health and will teach me about the country’s healthcare system and offer me unique insights into how they deliver healthcare. This program will also immerse me into the culture of Stockholm, I look forward to learning the language and the cultural customs of the county and interacting with the local people of Sweden. I am especially interested in the exploration of the relationship between modern and traditional medicine in Stockholm, and I am excited that the program includes volunteering in a rural community surrounding the capital city of Sweden. Participating in this program will prepare me to be an active and compassionate global citizen. This program will be extremely beneficial to my academic and career goals. I am on track to become a physician’s assistant and I am minoring in Sweden Studies. Participating in this program will give me the necessary credits and experience to complete the Sweden studies minor. Additionally, I desire to work in the Peace Corp in Africa after graduation providing healthcare and information to people in need. I believe that this program will help me be prepared and give me crucial experience and knowledge that will allow me to be successful in the Peace Corp and in other future career endeavors. I am need to raise $10,000 which will cover the cost of tuition, food, and other expenses for the program. Any possible donation you could contribute will help make this study abroad experience possible for me. I thank you in advance for your support and I appreciate your contribution.
