I am not my MCAT score...

As I left the exam facility this afternoon, those words were emanating from my being. I am a person that deeply cares about my fellow man. I am a person that has taken great strides to overcome ignorance. I am a person that has heart and determination to achieve great things. I am a person that believes, I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me. I am a person that transcends the boundaries of my physical exterior and soars from deep within my soul with the assurances that ALL THINGS WILL WORK TOGETHER FOR MY GOOD. I am me. Created in the image of my Creator, with limitless capabilities. I am a dreamer, a doer, an acheiver.

"My deepest fear is not that I am inadequate. My deepest fear is that I am powerful beyound measure. It is my light, not my darkness, that most frighten me. I ask myself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabuluous? Actually, who am I not to be? I am a child of GOD. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of GOD that is within us." Nelson Mandela

I am more than my MCAT score. I am more than my GPA. I am a woman of infinite abilities. A woman that looks to the future in hope and expectation of a better tomorrow for me and my family, my friends, and my community.

The song by India Irie, "I am not my hair" is my theme song today. I am not the exterior physical attributes you see, but I am a soul within. I am not your expectations.

I only pray that my complete application is reviewed and the admissions committee members can see who I am as a person. I am not my MCAT score...
