Name: Karishma Patel

High School: County Prep High School

Internship Site: Jersey City Medical Center

Career Interests: Ever since I was younger, my main goal in life was to help people and advocate for those who could not do it themselves. Inspired by my cousin, I have chosen to become a Physician’s Assistant specializing in dermatology.

Favorite Quote: Barack Obama once said, “Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” As a first generation child, I have always had to earn everything on my own and nothing has ever been handed to me. I have to work hard to help my family lead a more comfortable life and I must do everything I can now instead of waiting. I have to grab opportunities as they come my way and live my life in the present, rather than always being focused on the future. I want to lead my life with no regrets.
