Fundraiser Profile

Join me and change lives in Guatemala

Hello! My name is Sarp Dora Kurtoglu, and I am a 2nd year international student at UC Berkeley studying Bioengineering! I joined OHNI through the MSP Program during the Summer of 2019, where I was fully immersed into medicine and ENT by top tier physicians. After this experience, I was determined to dedicate my life and career to serve those in need the most around the world. That’s why I will be attending a medical/impact mission to Guatemala in March with a team consisting of extraordinary physicians, professionals and students, hoping to improve the lives of people that need us!

Born in Beijing, I learned to read and write French in Brussels, grew hair on my arms in Ankara, and attended homecoming in Los Angeles. Every time I moved to a new place, the language, people, and culture changed, but my passions stayed the same. I am passionate about building multicultural bridges with people from different and diverse backgrounds. I am also passionate about medicine and helping those in need. That’s why I am fundraising to help fund the medical, educational, and social services that we will provide in Guatemala!

Thank you again!
Sincerely,
Sarp Kurtoglu

I’ve committed to raising $10,000 towards Medical and Impact Missions in Guatemala. With your support we can change lives.
