My moments of being finally content happened in both senses of the word: 1) when I felt truly satisfied with my accomplishments, and 2) when I felt a sense that I could finally move on with my life.

School

He graduated from Yale University and received an MPH from the Yale School of Public Health. He completed medical school at Texas Tech Health Sciences Center School of Medicine and received his MBA from the Rawls College of Business at Texas Tech. He completed his residency training at the Johns Hopkins Hospital Combined Internal Medicine – Pediatrics Urban Health Residency Program in Baltimore, MD.

This includes visiting schools most weeks to teach lessons about weather and raise money, and hiking and biking across Maryland. Last August, Berk spent a week trekking 321 miles from Wisp to Ocean City to raise money for Cool Kids, a trip he plans to repeat this summer. He averaged dozens of miles per day and developed excruciating blisters. Despite this, he refused to cut corners. Because pedestrians and cyclists are not allowed on the Bay Bridge, he took a boat to the Eastern Shore. But rather than sit back and enjoy the breeze, he insisted on riding a stationary bike on the boat during the crossing. (Source: www.baltimoremagazine.com)
