This summer, Elise Frias from Miami will join outstanding high school students from across the nation to take part in a unique academic and career oriented development experience, Envision’s Advanced Medicine and Health Care Program at John Hopkins University in Baltimore.
The Advanced Medicine and Health Care Program is one of the Envision’s family of programs (www.envisionexperience.com) that enable students to explore their interests and experience learning beyond the classroom.
Elise Frias is a rising sophomore at Our Lady of Lourdes Academy and part of the Bernadette Scholars program, which is a rigorous program of studies, designed for highly-motivated and intellectually-gifted students to excel in academics. Elise currently boasts a 4.68 GPA and volunteers weekly at Baptist Hospital as an effort to help those in need while learning more about the medical field. She is also part of the school JV volleyball team, the God Squad club and plays travel volleyball with local club Miami Select. Elise speaks English, Spanish and Mandarin and is working to start a Mandarin club in her school. Elise has also run a food blog for the last three years with her sisters who appeared in and won Food Network’s Chopped Jr. She is excited to be attending Envision’s program being held at one of the most elite medical schools so she can continue to explore the medical field and determine if being a doctor is something she wants to continue to pursue.
“Envision’s Advanced Medicine and Health Care Program is a great opportunity for high-achieving scholars to get outside the classroom and see, through hands-on interactive learning, how to innovate and think creatively,” said Andrew Potter, the Chief Academic Officer for Envision. “These students, who have already proven themselves academically, will be challenged to work on real-world, student-created projects to bring their studies and career interests to life.”
Since 1985, Envision programs have served more than 800,000 students in more than 145 countries, with programs designed to help students develop the leadership, scholarship and career skills needed to succeed in today’s competitive college and career landscape.
