Created on January 29,2016 Mishka Sadat Sajjadi When I was in high school I went to the National Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine, a 10-day summer "camp" of sorts that introduces high schoolers to the ins and outs of the the medical field and prepares them for the challenges they may face if they choose to take that path. It is an opportunity for adolescents to step outside of their high school bubble and meet other teenagers from all over the country. It was one of the best and most pivotal experiences in my life thus far, not only because of the educational component, but also because it broadened my scope and allowed me to make friends with similar interests that I have to this day. It is long past my high school days but my best friend's little brother, Mohammad Issa, has been nominated to attend the Forum and would like to go. He is a phenomenal young man and is extremely passionate about his education. However the cost of the trip is more than he can afford. He has a limited time to raise the money and officially enroll in the program but with your help we can raise the money in no time! $3500 dollars will pay for the cost of a plane ticket to Chicago as well as the cost of tuition for the program. According to the program website tuition incudes: all curriculum and instruction, program activities, site visits, and events, overnight housing, program materials, at least two meals a day, a Certificate of Completion, and local transportation during the program. He has applied for financial aid and will fundraise on his own,however, since I was fortunate enough to attend the program myself and it propelled me on a life course that has allowed me to have philanthropic and influential connections, I have offered to help him; both out of admiration of his hardworking family as well as his dedication to higher education. Please consider donating to help fund his trip! Life experiences like this are important for young adults, unfortunately not everyone is fortunate enough to be able to have them. We can change that! Thank you in advance for your time and consideration! *While the money being raised is for Mohammad Issa to go to NYLF, he is under 18 and cannot withdraw the money from the site on his own, so the official person listed to withdraw is his Father NIMER issa
