Toronto high school in 2013 with honor roll and most improved award. Taha Qureshi
walked out of the High school with a dream, a dream to become a doctor.

Taha Qureshi believes a doctor should not only medically assist the patient, but
also should feel their pain and be able to emotionally help them as well. With his friendly
personality, ability to help and console others, interest in medicine, and professionalism
are the reasons why he desires to enter the medical field to become a doctor. His interest
in medicine started since childhood because he grew up in a house where his father is a
dentist. Seeing his father love his job in the medical profession, and the kinds of things he
did, have inspired Taha to do the same. Because of this, Taha Qureshi had tagged along
with his father and volunteered at his clinic many times as well as volunteered with other
doctors, such as Dr. Cheema. Taha also took this interest in volunteering at school. Along
with that, Taha also volunteered at many events such as Rheumatology Education Day at
Sick Kids Hospital and dinners to help fundraise for an MRI machine at The Scarborough
Hospital.

Along with volunteering and doing many things to get closer to a career as a
doctor, Taha has taken many science and mathematics courses throughout high school.
He took basic science and math in grades 9 and 10. In grade 11, He took math, and
branched science out into biology, chemistry, and physics. In grade 12, He took the
sciences again as well as Calculus and Vectors. According to the Ontario Education
system, science courses are optional after grade 10, but his reason to take them was solely
because of his interest in these courses, as well as pursuing a career in the medical field.

According to Taha, a doctor can either come to their practice and hate everyday of
it and show that to their patients, or a doctor can show that they love what they do and
want to do anything and everything they can to help their patients out. Taha would prove
to be the doctor that loves what they do because he has that interest and care for others.
To be a successful doctor, one must be caring, dedicated, liked in society, and a well-
rounded person. These are just some of the qualities Taha Qureshi possess which he
believes will make me a successful doctor and be perfect in the medical field.
