Serina is a rising senior at Kensington Health Sciences Academy.

In his JMB Award nomination letter, Serina's school counselor noted her leadership and empathic qualities. These strengths could be the synergy behind her career aspirations. Serina dreams of being a nurse practitioner. She has another career in mind, too. Serina hopes to be a motivational youth speaker, formalizing the role she currently plays with friends and other young women she lives with and counsels.

While Serina still has a year of high school before she can take more formal steps toward these two goals, she’s started putting the pieces in place, beginning with a summer internship at Children's Hospital of Pennsylvania (CHOP) and setting intentions with her JMB Award mentor.
