Hello everyone! My name is Jenny Hallesy, and I am a senior studying Human Biology in hopes of one day becoming a PA (physician’s assistant). I was fortunate enough to be able to walk across the stage in May and come August 14th, I will officially be an MSU alumni. As of right now, my goal as far as graduate school is to attend the PA masters program at the University of South Florida next Fall. I am taking this course not only as an elective, but also to better educate myself on how medicine differs among other cultures. I believe this knowledge will greatly benefit me one day when it comes to catering to the needs of patients that come from different cultures.
The picture I included is of my dog Maleki (Malachi) and I am absolutely crazy about him. I bought him 6 years ago when I was 16 and I still consider that one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Unfortunately, due to my lease, I haven’t been able to keep him here at school with me but I do find time to bring him to stay with me for a week every couple of months. I love being outdoors, so it’s great having a companion whenever I feel like going to the park, walking the nature trails at the beach, or camping up north. While I could go on for hours being the crazy lady that always talks about her dog, I’ll try to cut it short. The reason I decided to tell you about Maleki is because he is one of the most important parts of my life. Whenever the stress from school starts to become a little overwhelming, I know that all I have to do is head home for the weekend to get a little dog therapy. Having him around has truly made my college career more manageable.
