Meet the Class


Aleena Patel

Where will you be in school next year?

Rolling Meadows H.S. Junior

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


What are you most looking forward to by participating in the S.C.A.R.F. Program this year?

I am hoping to gain shadowing experience from observing Dr. Paul Nguyen as well as learning more about the inner workings of the incredible human body. I am also excited to get career and academic guidance from Dr. Rubina Nguyen. Furthermore, I am enthusiastic to do more research as apart of the SCARF internship program and to spread awareness about sudden cardiac arrest to my community.

What do you want people to remember about you?

I want people to remember my empathy for others. I always try to show compassion to the people around me and I hope to make an impact on every person I meet.
