Scholarships and awards at uLethbridge – Madeline


My name is Madeline Szabo. I am a fourth year neuroscience student at the University of Lethbridge. I chose the University of Lethbridge because I was born and raised in Lethbridge and I really love this city and I appreciate the chance to be close to my family while I am going to school. I also chose the university because of the incredible track and field program here as well as the neuroscience program. When I am getting ready to throw I am definitely always a little bit nervous I try to push past that and I like to kind of feel the excitement of the moment I really like to try to visualize my throw What it’s going to look like, what it’s going to feel like. Just visualizing the perfect throw really gets me in a good place. What’s really motivating to me as an athlete I think, is some of the shortcomings and failures that I’ve had. Some of the people that have said that I couldn’t do what I wanted to do. That really pushes me forward and makes me want to prove them wrong. And just prove to myself that I can do the things that I want to do. Scholarships have really made a world of difference for me. They’ve encouraged me in a lot of ways. Without them I wouldn’t be able to do everything I’m doing. They mean that I can focus completely on school, my track and field, as well as all my volunteering without having to worry about financial stress. My career goal is to someday be a doctor. I am passionate about being a doctor because I really want to help other people and I really love science and just being compassionate and caring for other people. So I think being a doctor would be able to incorporate the love I have for science and also just use that to make other people’s lives better. To shine is to let go of what is holding you back and pursue your dreams.
