Overcoming obstacles

Mary Fulk attributes Brooklyn’s resilience to her strong character and faith in God. “She is testament that you can overcome any obstacle thrown at you and persevere,” Mary said.

Brooklyn Fulk recently learned she has been nominated as a delegate to the Congress of Future Medical Leaders in Boston, Massachusetts. She will be representing Arizona at the three-day Congress in Lowell, Massachusetts from June 25 to June 27. Nominated by Dr. Robert Darling, the medical director of the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists, Fulk’s nomination was based on academic achievement, leadership and determination to serve humanity in the field of medicine. The Congress is an honors-only program for high school students who want to become physicians, or plan to go into medical research. The event is designed to inspire, honor and motivate the country’s top students who aspire to be physicians. During the event, Fulk will join other students from across the country and hear Nobel Laureates and National Medal of Science Winners talk about leading medical research.

A GoFundMe account has been established to help offset the cost of Fulk’s three-day trip.
