Meet the Class

Shalin Kadakia

Where will you be in school next year?

Senior at West Chicago Community H.S.

How many years have you been in S.C.A.R.F.?

2nd year

What made you want to join S.C.A.R.F.?

I chose to join SCARF based on both my passion for medicine and my desire to increase my involvement within my community. SCARF has allowed me to gain an aspect of professionalism and establish great teamwork and critical thinking skills.

What are you hoping to get out of S.C.A.R.F. this year?

This summer, I really want to gain a greater insight into becoming a more professional individual, and also how to learn and apply myself more both in and out of SCARF by challenging myself and furthering my critical thinking skills. I also want to work on my public speaking abilities and my effectiveness in presentations.

What's a fun fact about you?

I am an avid reader, more than most people would expect. Besides medicine, I am really interested in the sciences of astrophysics and astronomy. I have read many astrophysics books and watched several lectures and podcasts, contrary to what my friends and most people in SCARF realize.
