This summer I got to volunteer at Mount Sinai Queens. It was an honor to work there and I throughly enjoyed it. There were many components to my work there: I worked with equipment, I assisted the doctors, and I talked to the patients, which was my favorite part of the experience. I loved getting to know each of the patients because of their diversity. The hospital is located in Astoria, one of the most diverse neighborhoods in New York, and because of this, I got to meet people of all different different walks of life. Of course many of the people were elderly, and I loved hearing their stories about their life. I particularly liked hearing about the New York of old, given the constantly changing nature of the city.
