BATH TOWNSHIP — Fayme Gandhi, 17, an incoming senior at Bath High School, is hoping her final year at Bath will lead her into a career in the medical field.
“I would like to attend The Ohio State University and major in biomedical engineering,” said Gandhi. “I would like to further my career by attending med school and becoming a family physician. I really enjoy helping people. That’s kind of like the big reason. I’m also a really big fan of science. I think that’s probably like my best subject and I just learn a lot from it. Our bodies are just kind of unique and I like how we’ve learned how medicine can advance us throughout the years,” said Gandhi.
Gandhi is an avid tennis player and participates in Spanish Club, the National Honor Society at Bath and was a member of the student council her junior year.
She was also was involved in the Allen Lima Youth Leadership program.
“I really enjoyed the leadership skills I’ve learned from them. … They just bring such good energy into the room and everyone there is just so nice and so polite. I definitely enjoy working with Matt and David and Cindy. They were all very good leaders and I’ve just learned to be a better leader anywhere, whether it’s in the classroom or on the team or anywhere,” she said.
Gandhi revealed she has a competitive streak, not only on the tennis court.
“I’m really competitive in the classroom, too, so it just makes me want to get that 100 on the test or it makes me get that A in the class, even if there’s classes where people say it’s really hard, like anatomy or physics so I just really strive for my best,” she said.
She’s also learned valuable lessons from playing on the school’s tennis team.
“From tennis, I’ve learned patience is key. In tennis, you have really long rallies and stuff and if you’re just patient and you just keep doing what you’re doing you can win that point and overall the match,” she said.
Her experience at Bath High School has been a positive one.
“I like the people. I like being with my team. They’re really nice ladies. They have good sportsmanship. Everyone I meet is just so nice and you can learn from anyone here and all of the teachers are always willing to help you,” she said.
