-- While many students at 21 are just graduating college and figuring out which internship or company to take on, Amareen Dhaliwal is moving in a new direction. By age 15, she was sitting right up in her college general chemistry and physics classes; even being offered to tutor for them. Her professors noted her natural talent to teach, even subjects she hadn't taken herself, through simple mnemonics and references. But, it was the pressure of time that sat in her brain which drove her to begin medical school at age 19, 6 years younger than the average accepted student.
So what did this real-life doogie howser do to finish 48 hours in 24? She used a 24 hour planner. Amareen has used a 24 hour planner since the age of 12 to prepare to be a medical student. She never intended to be a young doctor, but was thrilled by the idea of learning more. So in order to begin college at 15; she needed to finish high school courses, premed courses, college degree courses, and 2 associate degree courses every quarter. The 24 hour planners she had stopped working; they had no space for actual life; just "goals" which were too broad to organize. Instead; she began using Pages on Mac to design tables that fit an entire 24-hour/day week on a single page. The other side was a day-to-day layout for different goals such as homework, courses, exams, hobbies, and social life. She then started to organize more and more; realizing her friends would be able to apply this to their life as well.
By age 18, Amareen was teaching after school premed classes with over 300 students enrolled where she came up with the idea of an MCAT planner. She got it published and sold over 2,000 copies in the first month with Amazon. She realized it could both be affordable and also handed out the lay out for anyone who preferred it online. As she expanded her test prep company, she established over 16 unique planners for all types of students from high school to medical school. Later she begin establishing multiple-choice test prep books for the new MCAT, being the first author to have a book with over 1,000 MCQs in sociology as well as psychology. She even authored 700 questions in research analysis, something not addressed until a year later in the MCAT industry. Now, Amareen has over 21 books at the age of 21 sold in stores around the world like Barnes and Noble, with students from India, Europe, China, and Canada as well. She works with young kids to write and guide the illustration of children's books which teach kids how different organ systems work in higher detail than ever done before. Having established the first ever 24 hour test prep planners, she hopes others can manage their time and achieve the speed they desire.
