Hello everyone, my name is Sultan Qiblawi, I am currently a senior, and I am studying Human Biology with a specialization in Bioethics, Humanities, and Society. I am in the middle of applying to medical school and I will be graduating in December of 2014. During the Fall and Spring terms I am an RA and conduct inorganic chemistry research at the Chemistry Building. I have previously taken a course that focused on anthropology as a freshman as integrated social science (ISS) credit. I am taking this class to fulfill one of my last requirements for my specialization, but also because I am interested in learning more about how health and culture are related. I am interested to learn more about medical anthropology and I feel that I will really enjoy learning about human health and disease in the context of this course.
I am a huge basketball fan, and I find myself spending a lot of my time either playing it with friends or watching it on TV. As a kid I picked basketball as a hobby and I really stuck with it as a form of relaxation and socialization. In high school, I was on varsity basketball and in college I still organize some IM teams with friends and with people on my floor. I have a great deal of fun playing any kind of organized sports, mostly football, basketball, and volleyball, so I did not want to limit my title to “basketball enthusiast.” Recently, I have not been able to play as competitively as I used to because I injured my knees in high school, but I still find a considerable amount of enjoyment from playing sports with friends. I chose to post a picture of Michael Jordan, because he embodies the sport, is my favorite player, and is the best player of all time.
