Developing an App

What single activity listed in the activity section of your Common Application are you most proud of and why? (150 words or less)


As a selected participant for the Medical and Education Perspectives program at Johns Hopkins University, I was given the opportunity to put my passion for medicine into practice. With support from a fellow classmate and a current Biomedical Engineering student, I created a user friendly mobile phone application that informed the user whether or not a given mole was cancerous based on its asymmetry, border, color, and diameter. I was amazed by the simplicity of app, as users could receive lifesaving results at the tips of their fingers from just uploading a photo to the application. I walked away with positive feedback from entrepreneurs, doctors, and graduate students; just as importantly, I made a medical contribution to society, one which serves as an early contribution in my prospective medical career path.
