I am an 18-year-old college student from Montréal, Quebec who has always been interested in medicine and health. Throughout my high-school years I have been actively participating in a vast range of extracurricular actives. Over the past two summer, I volunteered as a companion to patients with brain injuries at Montreal General Hospital. While at the General, I also had the chance to train as a volunteer in the dialysis unit. My time spent in that unit inspired me with the idea of trying to devise a dialysis machine affordable to patients in developing countries. I built a prototype on my own, and my school selected it for entry into the Montreal Regional Expo-Science fair. This lead to Provincial science fair and finally the Canada Wide Science Fair where I was awarded bronze. Now 2 years later, I am still hard at work on this dream that has become my passion.

    Dear Anya, You’re an amazing person. Thank you for working so hard on trying to save lives. I wanted to ask you if one can buy the dialysis machine. I would like to donate it to my home city in Morocco.
