Hi! My name is Mikayla Dove and I'm from Mountain Top, Pennsylvania, and I'm currently a freshman at Hillsdale College. My passion in life is helping others, especially children which is why I aim to be a child psychiatrist one day. I love to play piano and soccer in my free time and have been playing both since the age of 5.
Back home in Pennsylvania, I worked as a teacher's assistant at my local church's daycare. I would go every Sunday for two hours to help teach the children lessons that included basic art skills, reading, and occasionally, math.
Hillsdale College Genetics Lab, Lab Assistant

I started this job my spring semester of my freshman year to help get research experience to help me on the road to medical school. I run PCR and gel electrophoresis experiments on a weekly basis to help my professor with his research.

This was just your average high school job. I would cook, clean, work the cash register.
