<Start Snippet> Logan L  0:14  

Wow, it's making a significant impact on my life. Specifically because as someone who wants to go into the medical field, there's still medical school after my undergraduate years, right at Stanford, so and Coke has this special ability, right? I can, we can use this scholarship over a period of 10 years. So actually, all of my scholarship will be used later on during med medical school.

Venkat  0:53  [Introducing Logan Lau, 2022 Coke Scholar]

That is Logan Lau, 2022 Coke Scholar, and a recent graduate of Kamehameha Schools Kapalama, Hawaii.

Hello, I am your host, Venkat Raman.

With this Episode, we continue a select set of conversations with high schoolers about their outlook for their futures.

We are joined by Logan Lau, who will be a Freshman at Stanford University this fall.

Logan had multiple interests in high school.

But none of them rose to the level of being a passion, till….

Logan started doing particle research on mass filtration during COVID.

This got Logan all excited about medicine in general, and he started to get deeper into science and math.

All this came together with Logan’s interest in indigenous health and Tobacco use on the island.

Venkat Raman  1:54

In this Podcast, Logan talks about his interests in Humanities & Sciences, Medicine, Winning the Coca Cola Scholarship, his college search process, and advice to college aspirants.

Before we jump into the podcast, here are the Hi-Fives,  Five Highlights from the podcast:

Logan L  2:22  [Highlights - Hi Fives]

[Who is Logan Lau?]

My name is Logan Keiko Lau I've pretty much grown up on Hawaii, specifically on island of Oahu my entire life. Yep, so small world definitely for me. But my whole life I was really interested in just a myriad of things from speech and debate and public policy, advocacy work to research and medicine and, and public health and healthcare in general.

[High School Interests]

I didn't really find a deep passion until I actually started doing research with my school's research team. So with them, I was doing particle research on mass filtration. And that's when, during COVID The heart of COVID that I really found, I think, my passion for not just research but medicine as a whole.

[Why Coke Scholarship?]

When it comes to Coke i I've always from a really young age, I always recognize the name. The scholarship name, I knew that it was extremely prestigious. And it was it was an exceptional opportunity not beyond the money. Just the community.

 

[College Search]

It's all about fit, like I could I that's when I really started to prioritize. How did that school kind of like fit with me? And how did the student population, the feel that you get walking around campus.

[Advice to High Schoolers]

Staying really focused on holding your goals right up and knowing specifically what you want to achieve and what you want to apply for. Right just starting early, organizing yourself in a way that you're making it easier for for yourself to succeed.

Now, I'm sure you want to hear the entire podcast with Logan.

So without further ado, here's the podcast with Logan Lau!

--------------

Venkat Raman  4:50  

If you're ready, we can jump right in.

Logan L  4:54  

Yeah, for sure.

Venkat Raman  4:56  

Cool. So let's start by telling us who you are. Tell us a little bit about yourself.

Logan L  5:05  [Who is Logan Lau?]

Yep, so my name is Logan Keiko Lau I've pretty much grown up on Hawaii, specifically on island of Oahu my entire life. Yep, so small world, definitely for me. But my whole life, I was really interested in just a myriad of things from speech and debate and public policy, advocacy work to research and medicine and public health, and healthcare in general. And I think it's really shaped my life into what it is now and kind of helped me achieve all the things that, I that I have at this point.

Venkat Raman  5:53  

So let's dive right. And then tell us a little bit about your high school interest. Maybe you can start with your classroom, and then we can expand outwards.

Logan L  6:04  [High School Interests]

Right, so in high school, I was kind of like I mentioned before I was I was really interested in in kind of everything. And it took me a little while to kind of round down exactly like, what is my passion. So for a while I, I liked to do I really liked to public public speaking. So I was involved a lot with speech and debate, specifically public forum and US extemporaneous speaking.

But through that, I didn't really find a deep passion, until I actually started doing research with my school's research team. So with them, I was doing particle research on mass filtration. And that's when, during COVID, the heart of COVID that I really found, I think, my passion for not just research, but medicine as a whole. And I've I think I've had that passion to pursue healthcare, in the medical field for a while, I've been surrounded by medical professionals and my family. And I think that research really sparked another interest in me. And it kind of got me got me started really on pursuing my my passion within High School. Yeah, and then like as for the, for the classroom.

Yeah, so I was always interested, again, like, kind of on the more public speaking side, so I actually took a lot of Speech and Debate classes in my high school. But it's kind of funny, because you can see the progression of how I went from kind of a more humanities focused schedule, to a really like, science and kind of math focus schedule. So I definitely, like took a lot of the AP sciences and maths as well. So that was, that was definitely really fun. And I think having both experiences was was very valuable, kind of both ends of the spectrum.

Venkat Raman  8:17  

So you know, one of the things that you said, a few seconds ago really intrigued me, you said research in school. So was is your school, You know, cultivating fostering supporting research by students?

Logan L  8:34  [Research in High School]

Yeah, absolutely. So my school has this, this program, and it's actually like a class that you can take it. It's called honors science research. And in this class, it's absolutely amazing. We've had one teacher who's been her name is Gail Ishimoto. And, and she's been teaching this class for decades now. And it's, it's really just an amazing opportunity. So they, our school provides just the best world class lab equipment, cancer cell lines, bacteria, cell lines, they get every everything expensive that you'd see in a university lab, essentially. And they, they deliver it to us as high school students. And you can start as young as a freshman, so, so our school does an exceptional job. So yeah, so my school is commend my high schools. And it's actually one of the bigger schools on in Hawaii in general, and it's only for Native Hawaiians. So that's one of the interesting things about it. But sorry, getting back to that, that point on research. Yeah, they do an exceptional job at kind of cultivating this environment just by giving us the resources and then the means to learn how to start. Like our our own research journeys.

Venkat Raman  10:06  

So, tell me a little bit about indigenous health. I mean, I think that's one of your driving passions. How did that come about? I mean, I can see how but what does that? What did that entail?

Logan L  10:21  [Indigenous Health]

I think, really a lot of things. But my initial passion for medicine really started when I was maybe 10 years old. And just watching my parents were both in the medical field, my mother's had, my mother is a nurse, and my father is a dentist, and a lot of my close relatives are also doctors, or do something medicine involved. And I think, just through watching them as I grew up, it's it's really different. Watching people who work in the medical field and seeing their passion that they have for life, in general, but for their job, and for the people and their communities they serve. That's really interesting, because I've noticed, I guess, by being just being surrounded by them so much, so often, that I really wanted to replicate that, that kind of passion in my life, and, and over the years, it just grew on me so much that I am like, extremely confident now. And I've been confident for a while that I will definitely pursue medicine. And yet I hope to practice for the rest of my life.

Venkat Raman  11:47  

So what about tobacco? Well, I've heard of that. I mean, I can see the public health issue, which was tobacco, a big thing. Yeah. So

Logan L  11:57  

Tobacco kind of relates back to that in indigenous health point. You just brought up a little earlier. So yeah, I am. For those who don't know, I'm Native Hawaiian, because I have to be native plant to attend the school I do. But essentially, I got really passionate about it. When I heard about how disproportionately Native Hawaiians are affected by the tobacco industry. Here in Hawaii, we have some of the worst drug and e cigarette usage rates. I believe it's about 1/3 of high school students and 1/5 of middle middle school students here use E cigarettes on a regular basis. So I got really, I got really passionate about tobacco cessation efforts back when I was actually a freshman. And so over my entire high school career, and then even now to this day after, after I graduated, I was I was leading the Hawaii Public Health and Coalition for tobacco free Hawaii's youth council, which essentially was the youth branch of our tobacco cessation advocacy. And that's kind of really what got me started having a deep concern for a problem I saw which was native Hawaiians just being absolutely devastated. Our Communities uprooted by just addiction, tobacco addiction, e cigarette addiction, just in general. So that's what really got me into it. And it really did help that I was also passionate about medicine because it kind of tied in with that public health factor. So that was that was really good for me that I think that also contributed to that. That passion. But yeah, that's that's pretty much how how I got into it.

Venkat Raman  13:58  

Yeah, hugely commendable, which you're doing so congratulations. Thank you. Okay, so let's say go over to the Coke Scholarship. Yeah, tell us tell us why did you apply? I mean, what was what was the driving motivation?

Logan L  14:18  [Why Coke Scholarship?]

Absolutely. So like, when it comes to Coke, I, I've always from a really young age, I always recognize the name. The scholarship name, I knew that it was extremely prestigious. And it was it was an exceptional opportunity, not beyond the money, just the community. So I knew about it for a very long time. And I knew that that I wanted to apply so kinda for for a while I was not necessarily like, purposely building a resume or a building myself up to be able to apply apply to. But I was definitely exploring my passions and trying to take it, exploring them to the fullest extent, because I knew that just the Coca Cola Scholar network and to become a Coke Scholar meant that you'd have to, you'd have to act on your passions in a way that you, you could significantly change the world. And I still look at all all my fellow 2022 Coke Scholars and I still wonder, how was he able to get it? Because everyone is just so incredibly amazing. But yeah, that's kind of how I found out about the Coca Cola Scholars Program. And then also a little bit about why I applied.

Venkat Raman  15:58  

What was the process? Like, what is the application process? Like just to get a feel for? Was it laborious? Was it long was it you know, deep, insightful?

Logan L  16:10  [Coke Scholarship App Process]

Right. So it was quite, quite a long and arduous process. But quite frankly, I found it a little bit enjoyable. In the sense that, yes, the application process through coke has has three stages, right. And it's, it's, it's a little bit stressful. The first and second stage have quite a bit of required material that they want from ranging from assays and just creating your general application. And then the final stage is the interviewer, the 20 minute interview, and that one was particularly strenuous for me, just because I was so anxious going into it. There were by that point, there were only 250 people, and they were going to round down to 150. So that was those were pretty high stakes for me. But yeah, like, like I said, I think I found it quite an enjoyable because the application was such a self reflective process. And a lot of the questions they they asked, they asked me to answer we're, in a way get forcing me to reflect on some of the things that I've done in my life. And then really, the, it forced me to get to the core of why I wanted to do these things and why I was passionate about kind of tobacco cessation about research about all of these things. So I did find it enjoyable in that sense. But yeah, it was definitely stressful. But I'm definitely glad it worked out for the better.

Venkat Raman  18:04  

So you won the scholarship. Now? What does that mean to you? I mean, what kind of difference is it making?

Logan L  18:14  [The Coke Scholarship Difference]

Oh, wow, it's making a significant impact on my life. Specifically, because as someone who wants to go into the medical field, there's still medical school after my undergraduate years, right at Stanford, so and Coke has this special ability, right? I can, we can use this scholarship over a period of 10 years. So actually, all of my scholarship will be used later on during med medical school. So that for me is just a true game changer because, well, schools tend to give a lot of aid to undergraduates. Yeah, there's definitely a lot less opportunities for scholarships and aid out there for just medical students in general. And, and I think medical medical school is just so much more absurdly expensive than my undergraduate years. So for me, I think it means it means the world. I know that's a little cliche, but it takes a burden off both my shoulders and my parents shoulders. It allows me to truly focus on school rather than having to work right. Or, yeah, really just being constantly focused on finances. Because, as you know, I think if really, if you're if you're focused on how you going to pay for school, I don't think you really can focus on school. I think that's a big thing.

Venkat Raman  19:55  

No, I agree. I agree. Now, have you reached out to the eat other scholars Coke Scholars to the alumni? And are you finding some ways to collaborate or work with them or anything of that kind?

Logan L  20:12  

Yes, absolutely. So I just, I absolutely love the code scholars network, and they've done such a great job at connecting all of us in general, it's really a, I can really get the sense of it being such a tight, really tight knit community. So yeah, so far, I've gotten to know, a handful of Coca Cola Scholars, who are specifically going to Stanford. Yeah, so that was really nice. There's kind of like a little Coca Cola scholar community, about my school. So yeah, I tend to get in contact with some of them and make some connections there. And then we've also been having this actually, leadership development institute that's been going on through this summer and is ongoing right now. But essentially, I've gotten to kind of get really close with. I'm in a group of four altogether, including me. So I've gotten to get really close with a few other of my coat scholars that I probably wouldn't have met. Right, just at Stanford, because some of them are going to other like, really exceptional schools. So yeah, I've gotten to really connect and network and it's been a blessing.

Venkat Raman  21:34  

I kind of wanted to just get your views on how you're looking at your future. What are your priorities? I think I know a whole bunch of them based on what you said, and how do you feel about your future? Whatever does it and it sounds like a career in medicine is on the cards. But how do you feel about it emotionally?

Logan L  21:58  [Future Priorities & Aspirations]

I guess, obviously, I'm just extremely excited. Yeah. But I think it's also mixed with a little bit of stress, or a little bit anxiety, because in a good way, because I just, I, I've been blessed so much by Coca Cola, and by so many other like foundations, and by my parents that I definitely feel a need to kind of go out and make the difference. And that I tend to in this in this world, and then kind of fulfill and give back to Coca Cola, and to my community in the way that they kind of gave back gave to me and invested in me. So I'm really, I'm excited. A little stress, though, to finally, in my future after I go to school, and hopefully get my MD to really go out and kind of make the difference. And kind of give back as much as was really poured into me throughout my high school career and throughout my life as a whole.

Venkat Raman  23:17  

Just a random question. I wanted to ask you, would you? Are you planning to go back to the island? I'm planning to go back to Hawaii, or would you? You don't you haven't thought that far?

Logan L  23:27  

Yes, absolutely. So that's always been a plan of mine, actually. So I'm, I'm, I'm really interested specifically in neurosurgery. I know, it's, it's really, it's really a niche, specialty field. But yeah, I'm really interested in neurosurgery. And I want to come back to the islands for sure. There's just such a doctor shortage here. Specifically for for specialties, definitely for neurosurgery. So, yeah, I definitely want to come back to the islands and I want to kind of help the community that raised me.

Venkat Raman  24:07  

So let's talk a little bit about how you went about finding your college. Just, you know, to help our listeners with what, what you went through or what process you followed. So share with us what you were looking for in college and what were some challenges, if any?

Logan L  24:27  [College Search]

Yeah, sure. So I went about the college process. I guess at first, just on such a surface level, looking back at it, I kind of wonder why I did that.

But I at first, I guess I looked at which schools would prepare me best for medical school or when would provide me the best chance as a pre med to go to med school just because you know So nowadays, medical school has become such has become so, so competitive. So, for me, that's kind of that kind of was my first priority. So after I kind of made a pretty comprehensive list, which ended up being mostly elite schools as I mean, you can kind of figure the top three med schools would usually be kind of more towards the elite side. So yeah, so after I kind of did that, I realized, kind of going into it after, after actually visiting and doing fly ins to a handful of schools. I realized that I, I kind of hated them.

And just the and it was then that I had that revelation really, that it's, it's all about fit, like I could I, that's when I really started to prioritize. How did that school kind of like fit with me? And how did the student population the feeling that you get walking around campus? The, I guess, the, the, the comprehensive network of just the people, the classroom, the location, right? How did all of these things kind of factor into how it fit for me, personally, and that's when the decision just got incredibly easy. Because I was looking at all the schools, I went to the East Coast, I realized it was just way, way too cold for me. I'm from an island. And it's, it's what like, add mid 80s Here, consistently throughout. Yeah, and then I was in New York, and it was, like 40 degrees in April. And I was like, Oh, it shouldn't, it shouldn't be kind of like, a little warmer by now. But I guess not. So that was a little, that was a little rude awakening, but essentially, weather location, rounded it down pretty fast as well.

And just by visiting the campus walking on it, talking with the students, I got a very, very quickly, I got a feel of what it's like to be a student at each of these these top elite schools that, that I was kind of, I guess, considering at first, and then yeah, so and then at that point, I, that's when I really started falling in love with Stanford, and specifically, a lot of my West Coast schools. And, yeah, and just kind of getting to that process was a number of things, right, starting off with having rounded down my list, specifically on just what school has like amazing academics, pre med opportunities in general, and Stanford, of course, and then then it kind of like location and then fit. How does the student population kind of how would I be able to connect with them? That's definitely one of them. And then, right, and then in that is just so many things like diversity? Just the overall feel you get? Yeah, when you're talking with the students and just, like living amongst them, right, these are, these are it's more than, like, you're going to school and you're going back home to your family. It's like you're living with all these people. 24/7. Yeah, like that's, I think it's almost equally as important as considering the academic opportunities of the school. So yeah, that's kind of how I got to Stanford. And it was really great, because it just so happens. My auntie also lives in Palo Alto. So I have a family member really close. So I think that's also played a key role as well.

Venkat Raman  28:57  

Awesome. Yeah. And it's, you know, it's not as cold as New York, so

Logan L  29:04  

definitely not. Yeah.

Venkat Raman  29:07  

Okay.

Venkat Raman  29:12  

Now, did you get any help along the way, as you were processing and thinking about colleges, did you have a counselor at the school? What kind of guidance did you get?

Logan L  29:25  [College Guidance]

Yes, so I, I had an exceptional college counselor at my school, Mr. Steve Morales. So yeah, so Mr. Morales, he, he really, really helped me kind of just from the start to get off the ground to get looking for school is kind of to get it basically to get a head start on everything. And I think that is really the key because when you're in the hot zone, as I like to say, and you're just bombarded with everything college applications. Meanwhile, also scholarship applications because Coca Cola, the Coca Cola scholarship is to you before you actually submit any of your college apps. So that's really important. So yeah, when you're in this, like hot zone, it's like, so easy to just forget about things or, or to let things pass you by because everything's coming just way too fast. So, yeah, so I got a lot of help from him on getting a head start, and then getting the connections, so that I'd be able to have a comprehensive list and of ways that I can time management, but also, like a list of this is all the things that I know, I want to apply to you and over the next few months. And then this is when I'm going to do them. And in what priority I'm going to do them. I think that was a big one too, because I definitely definitely right wanted to put a lot of time into my coke application. So that was that was that was definitely high on the priority list. But yeah, I mean, I, I'm human, I didn't, I still had 24 hours in a day. And it was like, things I had to make trade offs in like, what kind of meant the most to me, and what I wanted to pursue, right, because you can apply to everything unfortunate. But yeah, that's kind of how, how it ended. And like, I guess at the end of the day, yeah, I've had so many mentors, right. So back in, going back to research, Miss Ishimoto, who was my research mentor, and then just from doing a number of internships outside, I got letters of recommendation from one of my doctors who was a PI at, sorry, who was the, I guess, the principal investigator at one of the research labs, clinical research labs that I interned with, Dr. Kore Liao, a neurologist, so just so many people, too many to name, my parents, just everyone. Absolutely, people that contributed. Yeah.

Venkat Raman  32:18  

So I'm just gonna ask you a question that, you know, comes up a lot, which is, did you did you have fun with the process? It was your senior year. enjoyable? Did you have fun? Or were you all stressed out?

Logan L  32:32  [Enjoying the Process]

Oh, I had, I had so much fun. It was it was quite fun. And you don't realize it? Because in the moment, it's like, you're just stressed. So you're not really looking at anything else. You have this tunnel vision, this myopic perspective, and just you have to get everything done. But I promise you, the second, everything is done. And you can you finally have a moment to just breathe and take a step back. It's, you'll realize that it was actually kind of fun process like, just, yeah, yes, stressful, but it just, it makes you grow. I think it truly makes you grow as a person because so many college, colleges and and supplements, kind of really dig deep into who you are as a person. I think that's extremely, extremely valuable. So yes, I found it to be quite enjoyable. And even scholarship applications to because they kind of coincide with with college applications. And usually they're they're quite similar as well.

Venkat Raman  33:43  

Sure. Cool. So Logan, we are starting to wind down. And I thought with all your perspective and experience over the last year or two, what would you tell high schoolers about the college process and about being a senior?

Logan L  34:05  [Advice to High Schoolers]

Right. So I think the number one thing that I, I tell, I guess current seniors would be just to always make sure that you take time to step back and relax. I know personally how stressful the whole process can be. And how like, really, you can just feel so much anxiety and and stress about your future because so much is riding on such few moments, in my opinion.

But yeah, just really taking that step back and I think do in doing so. It would really help just with your ability to your your mental health, really and I think that it just personally increases your ability to perform better overall And to be able to really think deeply back on your life and it, it really helps you self reflect, which is kind of what's perfect.

And what's really, really critical that you convey in, I guess, to all of these colleges and in all your essays. So I think that's definitely one of the number one things. And then yeah, truly just, yeah, taking that step back, for sure. And then also, in doing so, just staying really focused on holding your goals, right? Up and knowing specifically, what you want to achieve, and what you want to apply for.

Right, just starting early, organizing yourself in a way that you're making it easier for for yourself to succeed. You're putting yourself in like situations where? Yes, like you can do as bet like, just so well, and, and setting yourself up for success, essentially. I think that's just such a great, great thing. And just right. Part of that, or the one of the best parts of that is just really getting a head start on everything. And for me, I think it definitely paid off. Kind of starting early. But yeah.

Venkat Raman  36:26  

Awesome. So, Logan, you are an extremely impressive young man. And it's fantastic. What you've done so far, and I'm sure a lot lot more to come. And I wish you all the luck at Stanford and beyond and med school. And I hope we stay in touch and talk more, but for right now. Take care. Be safe. Enjoy. What's left of the summer.

Logan L  36:57  

Absolutely. Thank you so much.

Venkat Raman  36:59  

You take care. Yep, you too.

Logan L  37:02  

Bye bye.
