Hey! My name is Gregory – Greg for short. I’m seventeen years old and a junior in high school, and I’m the new male youth advisor in the Adolescent Medicine Department at Children’s Hospital Boston. There’s no way to really describe me with just a single word, so here’s some info. I’m very easy to get along with. I’m an abstract thinker and always try to think out of the box. I’m a passionate sports player, and I play a variety of sports that wouldn’t be categorized in the same level of popularity. I play soccer; I wrestle, and play rugby.
Soccer has played a big role in my life. I’ve been playing since I was five and hope to play professionally one day. I’ve met so many people from playing soccer, and because I’ve played on so many different teams I’ve learned to feel comfortable in new environments. This has helped me be comfortable making friends and talking to new people.
The reason I decided to becoming a peer leader was because my health care provider thought I would be good for the job. I’ve been told in the past that I have some leadership qualities. I like working with others (not in a controlling way), but so there’s a common goal. I try my best to give advice that’s in everyone’s best interest, and have been known to try to please to my best ability. When I was offered a job as a youth advisor, it sounded like a good idea. At first I was procrastinating a little bit on making the decision, but in the end I decided it could only help, so here I am – a youth advisor at Children’s Hospital Boston.
