Congress of Future Medical Leaders Reviews
A Gifted Student Who Wants to Change The World
Hali Reyes attends Moffat County High School. She is an excellent achiever, both in academics and extra-curricular activities. She is a student council member who aspires to run for the presidency. Hali is also a member of several organizations. She belongs to the Link Crew, Honor Society, DECA, and Future Business Leaders of America.
Aside from these, Hali is also very much into athletics. She’s part of the high school golf and volleyball teams.
As her time in high school comes to an end, Hali knows that she has some serious decision-making to do. Along with contemplating where to go to college, she is also considering her contribution to the world. Hali says that she needs to “figure out” how she is going to “benefit people and change the world.”
But, what is Hali’s idea of changing the world? Well, for this gifted student, having a career in the medical field is the way to go. Her goal is to become a forensic pathologist.
She credits her interest in crime shows for this career choice. And, as Hali says, she has “always been interested” in people who work with the human body.
Hali’s father also has big dreams for his daughter. She shares that her dad “has always thought” she will attend Harvard University.

Previously, Hali attended the Congress of Future Medical Leaders in Lowell, Massachusetts. She was nominated for the Congress by Paula Duzik, a high school counselor.
Hali’s school principal, Kyle York, expressed that her award nomination was “amazing.” He also believes that it’s important for students to know the value of hard work. He knows that this is what will make people notice them, regardless of where they come from.
The Congress Experience
Hali gained a lot from her time at the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists Congress. The messages she heard from noted medical and scientific professionals inspired her.
But what left the deepest impression on Hali were two remarkable talks. One was from a woman who was the recipient of the first full-face transplant and her doctor, while the other was from a teen who contributed to the detection of colon cancer.
Before attending the Congress, Hali was concerned over the expense. But in the end, her whole family accompanied her to Boston and her father joined her at the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists Congress.
Hali’s friend Annette Dunkley also went with her to Boston. She understands the expense of making the trip. But she also knows that it’s more important to be certain of what you want to do in life. Annette believes that the Congress has helped pave the way for the path Hali wants to take.
Both the Academy and the Congress aim to renew each Delegate’s sense of purpose for their career goal. Our desire is to equip these students to be capable of pursuing their passion in the medical field. And we are here to encourage them so that they will gain confidence in their chosen field.
A Future of Possibilities
After her Congress experience, Hali has realized that anyone can achieve amazing things. A future full of possibilities is not only for those who come from high-income families or big cities. Those who work hard and persevere succeed, no matter what their background may be.
The talks that Hali heard at the Congress has made her appreciate more those who do great things. Hali knows there are many good opportunities waiting for her. And with her work, she can make a positive impact and change the world.
Indeed, anyone can do great things. This video from FutureDocsNow will inspire you. Here, a Congress Speaker shares her own journey from being a delegate to becoming a mentor:
