Went Island hopping in Chuuk! (Chuuk is a group of neighboring Micronesian islands near Guam, the island where I live). We went from island to island in small metal boats and distributed medical supplies and assistance to the natives. I helped doctors from Korea by translating English to Korean after a Native Chuukese speaker translated Chuukese to English. I also served as a nurse doing various tasks like taking blood samples and sorting medicine.

Background

Bio

Hey! My name is Daniel and I’m a Stanford student who was accepted on a full ride scholarship. I am a low-income full-need student so I personally know how hard it is to navigate college admissions and I’d love to help you whether its a college essay or scholarship application.

In my free time I love to watch anime, bake and play video games. I’d love to know more about you and help you anyway I can!
