  • Ethiopia:- What’s Next For The Ethiopian Student Who Won $2 Million+ In Med School Scholarships

     Ethiopia What’s Next For The Ethiopian Student Who Won $2 Million+ In Med School Scholarships

    Not only did Johns Hopkins senior Melaku Arega get accepted to all ten of the medical schools he applied to, including Harvard and Stanford. He also received full rides at seven schools and partial scholarships at the other three, raking in more than $2 million dollars in total scholarship offers.
    And what did he do to celebrate?

    Arega, who will attend Harvard this fall, teamed up with his two JHU classmates, Lamin Sonko and Haziq Siddiqi, to launch White Coat Strategists, a consulting company focused on providing medical school applicants with accessible one-on-one application support.

    “We felt that there were not enough advising resources when we applied, and the limited resources that were available were marketed at a very high, unaffordable price,” he says. Whereas private admissions consultations tend to start around $2,000, White Coat Strategists’ starting packages can be up to 80 percent lower in cost, says Arega, adding that the organization has already offered pro-bono packages to a few high-potential students.

    Counseling also comes from insiders. “We think we can bring value to pre-med students by giving them more accessible advising services from students who know what the experience is like,” says Arega, whose co-founders – Sonko and Siddiqi – are headed to the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine and Harvard School of Medicine respectively"

    Born and raised in a small town in Ethiopia, Arega immigrated to America in 2009 when he was 14 years old. As a child, he was starkly aware of how the poor quality of health in his hometown afflicted his community. His choice to pursue medicine stems from a desire to help more people – especially those from backgrounds similar to his – achieve the health they need to lead longer, better lives.

  • 4 lies women tell their husbands

    A marriage is for better or for worse but at times one party will lie to avoid the worse part. That party could be the wife and she can tell lies to her husband for different reasons.

    The lies she will tell can be deemed as innocent white lies meaning that they veil the truth. It’s a lie told with good intentions and not one meant to hurt the other person. I’m sure some women think they can’t lie but they may find themselves telling lies the longer their stay in the marriage.

    It could be telling their husband he hasn’t added weight when he has to assuring him that their parents love him when they don’t.

    Here are four major lies all wives should be familiar with:

    1. “You’re the best sex I’ve ever had”

    This could go in line with telling him his penis is the biggest on earth or he has made them feel like no one ever has. If they had a good sex life before, they would have experienced other men.

    Sexier men, bigger men and so on but she ended up with her husband who they love so much that they chose him as their best. However if it’s about him being physically the best one earth…girl, that’s a big, fat white lie.

    2. “I’ll be ready in a bit”

    We know women take forever to get ready and wives are the same. Their husband may want to take them out for date night but they have so much to do, it’s taking forever. When he asks how much longer he has to wait, they shorten the time instinctively when they know by that time, there’s no way they will ever be ready. It’s just a white lie to give him false hope.
