New stretch target

My name is Isla Symons, I am a seventeen year old student currently studying for my A-Levels in Cornwall.
The project I am undertaking is two weeks medical work experience in Africa this summer that would increase my chance of getting a university place on a degree course in the medical field next year.

Brief outline of the project
Pre medicine work experience in St Joseph's Hospital in the Soweto region of Moshi,Kilimanjaro, Tanzania. 19th July – 2nd August 2015
