Chicago College of Osteopathic medicine should accept me into this year’s class for my demonstrated commitment to osteopathic medicine and cultural diversity and perspective I will bring to the program. I came out to my family 10 months ago and I was forced to abruptly uproot myself to Seattle, Washington in order to live my truth. I am an Armenian Christian female who identifies as a lesbian. Navigating towards a career in medicine from a disadvantaged background was incredibly challenging yet rewarding. Being an active member of cultures that have been historically oppressed instilled an appreciation for hard work and commitment to reaching my goals. Despite these recent financial and emotional set-backs, my determination to pursue osteopathic medicine was reaffirmed. My fearlessness and ability to rebuild and progress regardless of external circumstances will make me an excellent candidate.
