As a child where the hospital was a second home to me, I promised myself that I would push hard to become a doctor no matter the circumstances. It seemed like such a simple mission in my naïve mind. I was not aware of how perplexed this process would be. This is why I strive to attend a university where I will continue to be challenged academically and become more independent in my medical studies. Along with being motivated to become the best version of myself.
Taking my career choice into consideration was key in my decision which for most people is a long, difficult, and tedious process. The university I will be attending next fall is Washington University in St. Louis. I immediately fell in love with the school as a result of the academic programs, its community, and the classic Midwestern hospitality that I have gotten used to after having lived most of my life in Nebraska. I believe that this university specifically will help me achieve my goal of eventually becoming a neurosurgeon and making a difference in medicine and the world. My talents will be best served and exemplified at a university of this nature and will push me to go for the stars and accomplish my
The imagines that disgusted my mother was a source of my fascination that sparked my interest to read in order to discover the knowledge I was seeking. Ever since I could remember that story of my birth being told, it was a defining moment for me – one I believe has allowed me to become the person I am today. Even though, others have told me they cannot see me working in healthcare or that I’m too small to be an emergency medical technician. I believe in facing adversity, that all things happen for a reason and every tribulation can allow me to reach my full potential. While in the first month of my emergency medical technician class, I had faced a tribulation that had caused me to question the beliefs that are my foundation.

Everyone is always asked growing up what they would like to be in life. Some say that they would like to be a veterinarian or a lawyer; myself, a Neonatal surgeon. Why did I choose the Medical field for my major, you ask? Simple, there is nothing better then to know one day I will be the person to make miracles happen for families; always doing something different, whether you 're doing your clinical, learning new techniques for procedures, or growing to become a better doctor each day. A Neonatal surgeon is different then just the General surgeon.
When I first applied for college at YVCC my goal was to get a certificate as a medical assistant. But after attending two-quarter I talk to my advisor and we decide to change my goal and instead of just receiving a certificate I decided to take a step further and go the whole way. Therefore, my goal is to achieve my associate of applied science as a medical assistant. I have always had obstacles in my life since I was in high school, but I have always found the way out. To be honest, I never thought I would be able to graduate from high school or even get accepted to college, but after so many years I am achieving everything that I thought of as impossible.
When I first moved to Mexico I was 15 years old; I had everything in D.R, friends, family, and sport, a life I really enjoyed and was really happy with it. I had always thought I was going to spend the rest of my life in my home country, since I was born there, but I guess I was wrong. I didn’t make it a big deal because I knew I was still going to be with my family, and family is everything. It was my first time going to Mexico and have a completely different lifestyle so I was pretty nervous. As soon as I arrived Mexico, I was completely shocked; All I saw were buildings everywhere; I was used to seeing land everywhere and animals right in front of my house.
On the other hand, I was eager about going to a laboratory and getting some real life working experience. At the end of the week, I realized that there was nothing to worry about, and that this experience maybe one the best things that happened during these long four years of college. I was supposed to start my clinical rotation in the chemistry department of the laboratory at Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital but, due to interference with the
The Profession of Social Work as a Career Goal Graduating from high school, I have always had a passion working with kids. I never put into thought exactly what I wanted to do with kids, all I knew was that I wanted to work with kids. At first, my career choice was to become a midwife. There were several complications down the road, in which I could no longer pursue that career choice. I had to re-evaluate myself, as well as my career, and that is when I came across social work.
I have always loved learning about medicine, but unlike most others, I lack a passionate, touching spiel about how my true life’s purpose is to help those in need. I simply like medicine. I know it will be an lengthy, arduous journey, but I’m willing to do what is necessary. Despite the fact that my career probably won’t start until I am well into my late twenties, I have recognized that every step towards my goal is a part of the career-developing
