I am James Ballard. I am a graduate from the University of Illinois in Molecular and Cellular Biology and plan to go on to receive my Masters from Loyola University in Chicago and then attend Medical School. My interest in medicine has driven me to be involved as much as possible with worthy causes like Medical Missions to the Dominican Republic or volunteering in hospitals. I have always been involved in endurance athletics and this trip gives me an opportunity to put that energy towards something that so powerfully affects virtually everyone across the world.

Personal Statement

No matter who you are or where you are from, you should always try to do something to help someone.
