I never knew waking up at 7 am to catch the 8:10 bus for 4 Saturdays would be the highlight of my day. For every Monday that rolled around, I couldn’t help but wish it was Saturday again so I could attend my PASH workshop. Every Saturday was as blissful and exciting as the next. There was a whole new world of learning to be uncovered the minute I stepped foot on the elevator and up to the 10th floor.  During the PASH program, I got the opportunity to learn and hear from many different outstanding dermatologists and skin experts [and] the privilege of using my knowledge that PASH has given me to educate my teachers and peers about skin health. Like, come on, what other 10th grader was given the privilege of looking at a basal cell carcinoma under a microscope.
