My name is Lila Brown, and I am a 2022 at the Sidwell Friends School in Washington, DC. Some of my hobbies include soccer, reading, running and playing with my little sister. I had the opportunity to see open-heart surgery in 6th Grade, in person, and since then, I have wanted to be a surgeon. I plan on volunteering at Children's Hospital for 8 weeks the summer before my Senior year (I was planning on going this year). I decided on this because working with kids is something I am super passionate about.
Some of my strengths include my dedication, hard work and strength. I am currently working on not getting frustrated with myself when I make a mistake, and instead learning from these mistakes.
