Congratulations to
Lawrence Berry
Wayne State University School of Medicine
Class of 2023
“I am a second-year medical student at Wayne State University, and I have had a long journey to become the person that I am today. It was not always a straight or easy path to medical school growing up in Detroit, where it can be easy to get caught in the wrong kind of life sometimes, but with the support of my family, the change in my mentality, and the help of the post- baccalaureate program at Wayne State University School of Medicine, I am here today. Growing up, I did not always know where my path would lead. I knew that I wanted to become a physician but being the first person to attend college and having no other physician in my family made my path tougher than maybe it should have been. There is a saying that you don’t know what you don’t know until you find out, and there was a lot of things I had to find out that later in college and even in life that put me at a disadvantage. Along my path, I was able to meet and learn from people from different backgrounds, not just about medicine, but about communicating with others, public speaking, financial literacy, and health. I say these things because I know that becoming a well-rounded individual has helped shape me into the confident, passionate individual that I am today. I am a product of the Detroit Public Schools system and I am proud to say I was able to navigate my way through college to obtain a bachelor’s degree of Science in Human Biology from Lyman Briggs College at Michigan State University. This feat was not easy and I had many rough patches along the way, but I am proud to say that I have overcome my disadvantages and that this is not my last victory. I want to thank the Wayne County Medical Society Foundation for recognizing me and for giving me this opportunity. I am extremely grateful and will use this as inspiration to continue striving for success and inspire others to do the same.”
