HOSA has scientifically designed more than 60 competition projects around different majors and professional fields in the biological and health medical fields. The competition covers various subdivisions of the health and medical industry, including nutrition, psychology, pathology, anatomy, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and first aid, providing a platform for students with different interests and expertise to learn and demonstrate relevant academic knowledge.
Every year, students from all over the world compete and advance through multiple rounds to reach the top three of each competition project and advance to the ILC (International Leadership Conference) global finals, with an advancement rate of about 5%.
In this high-quality and high-standard competition, top students from prestigious schools across the country gather together. Alex, who was able to stand out from the competition and achieve this excellent result, could not have done it without his usual study accumulation and his love for biology.
Alex aspires to study biopharmaceuticals and hopes to conquer the difficult problem of cancer in the future, helping humanity achieve a healthy and high-quality life.
Here is the interview of Alex
How do you learn Biology? What’s your trick?
Everyone has their most optimal way to study, I don’t believe that I’ve mastered effective studying nor am I the best at Biology, but personally I like to make mind-maps to visualize the concepts learnt, flash cards can be useful for memorization but most importantly don’t be afraid to ask questions and have humility. You will fail plenty of times before you truly succeed at something, we’re only human after all. And finally, be sure to turn in your homework, it doesn’t sound important but it really does help prepare you for exams.
Any advice for MIS students?
I truly think that my cram style of studying style isn’t healthy for anyone to replicate, so I strongly suggest everyone try methods until they find what works for them. I’ve only recently started using mind maps despite being an infamous over-thinker, so be sure to adapt and experiment since notes and textbooks don’t work for everyone. Take care of your health, it is tempting sometimes to pull all nighters and skip leg day for an exam, but the results won’t be nearly as satisfactory as getting a good night’s rest. Eat healthy, sleep and take care of your mental health. Exam stress is real and so are panic attacks, however with the right stress management methods and healthy coping mechanisms these small hurdles won’t stand in the way of your success. Lastly believe in yourself, I used to doubt myself until my biology teacher (Ms.Gloria) started to say she believed in me. From that point onward I stopped giving up on myself and believed that I had the power to change my fate, so now instead of drowning in self-hatred, I strive to live up to my potential and I hope you can too.
