Holding a diploma in my hands and going to college has been one of my dearest dreams; I have always believed in reaching my maximum potential and dreamed numerous times of being able to go to medical school, study, help and lead my community through the medical field. Ever since I was a little girl, I knew I wanted to become a doctor, I have always been amazed and feel an immense interest in learning specifically about biology and medicine; I feel a serious motivation towards understanding how the human body works; each organ, tissue and every cell interests me; I desire to learn and understand how the diseases manifest, how to diagnose and master each technique to treat them;I am extremely committed to my education and to reaching my goal which is to become a doctor.
I would have the opportunity, not only to shape my own education, but to have the chance to improve the medical school system. It also allows for modernization in teaching methods, such as simulation-based training. I already tend to use hands-on and visual learning methods in studying and so this would help me immensely in succeeding while enjoying the material being taught. We did a lot of simulation-based learning in my EMR class and it was my favorite part of the course. I was also attracted by the WMed approach to teaching through teamwork.
As you know, I 'm currently taking and, by the way, enjoying your Medical Terminology course. I 'm working towards my Medical Assistant certification. My hopes are that I will be able to continue my education to become certified in a nuclear diagnostic career. I 'm loving the online format! On a personal note, I love to travel, preferably where it 's warm, but will go anywhere on an adventure.
In this fear, I always tried to do make him proud. I always took part in quizzes and debates, just to see a glimpse of smile on his face. “Very well, but could have done better” that was his words every time it tries to do something for him. I was uncertain will I ever be able to make him proud and receive that love that I always dream about. Nov 22nd 2010, it was Dad’s birthday we had very sophisticated dinner that night, but it suddenly changed.
Imagine being a competitive athlete that can do almost anything and in a matter of seconds never being able to hug love ones or do the simple everyday tasks many take for granted. That’s how life is when a person is diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) it’s a fatal disease that causes a person to lose complete control of their body and constantly need assistance. Having ALS also means having to watch the body deteriorate when the mind is perfectly aware of its own demise. Being diagnosed with Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) is a progressive degenerative disease caused by multiple severe concussions to the head.
I only began to understand the concept of an individual being terminally ill when my grandmother went into the hospital. I placed my hand inside of hers and stared at her emotionless face. I could only imagine the pain running through her body and the agony of not being able to vocalize a response to my ‘I love you’. Day after day she waited only anticipating her death and the pain she would feel if indeed she woke up the next day. I would have done anything to not have to see her go through the pain, and to allow her to get to her fate quicker and more comfortably.
Why did you decide to become a physician and how do you plan to use your time as an undergraduate student to reach your goal? *
Imagine being unable to walk, unable to speak, unable to move and unable to breathe. Imagine being in a state of complete paralysis where the only thing that keeps on functioning is your brain, and you live chained to a machine doctors call life support. Imagine being told that you have an incurable disease that will inevitably kill you. Maybe next month. Maybe next year.
Tuesday afternoon. I was reading a book and drinking a cup of hot chocolate in my room, near the window. It was January, but everything looked so calm and nice outside. Suddenly, I heard my mom calling my name and she told me that we need to talk. I couldn’t recall that I made a mistake in the past days, but still, I was feeling worried and scared as all kids do. I went to the dining room trying to figure out what was going on. I could see the sadness in her eyes, a sign that there was a problem. She told me that she has been keeping a secret for a long time, but it is time for me to find out the truth. I thought that she is getting divorced or something of that sort but she was trying to tell me that my aunt whom I really loved was very ill. She had Parkinson’s disease.
The author Wes’s father demonstrated leadership, gentleness, and tranquility (The Other Wes Moore, pg. 11); while the other Wes’s father was a drug addict and wife beater who ended up on the streets and in jail. Their decisions as fathers had a direct impact on their children’s futures; where one ends up a decorated veteran and Rhodes scholar, and the other one ends up locked up in prison. This realization made me think about how blessed I am with the parents I have; who have been active role models, teachers, coaches, leaders, friends, and protectors through every step of my life. Never in my life have I questioned if my parents love me and want the best for me, something that I have probably taken for granted. It’s also forced me to question how I’m living my life today; am I setting myself up to be a good father in the future?
In the future, I would like to become a medical assistant. This career seems to be a perfect match for me because I have been an EMT for 16 years. I have always had a passion for helping people in their time of need, ever since I was a little kid. I would be the person out on the playground trying to help others, when they got hurt. I would be the kid when the fire department came to the school, for a public relations event, that would be right in the middle of them asking questions.
Father’s have a great amount of influence on their kids, especially on their sons, because they look up to them as role models. Having someone to teach them all about manhood, resourcefulness etc. Although some father’s are absent in a kids life and some are not always there, and some may struggle to provide for their kids, and giving them what they need., Fathers all want the best for their kids, even if that means that they we’re never there physically in their life or are not always there. And as children get older they may develop some hatred towards their father for not being there, Having an understanding and a reason to why they had did what they did, and those kids will eventually realize that after their father that
Unlike my mother, my father would give a child a second chance. He would talk to children instead of punishing them. I remember being expelled from middle school; my father and I talked about the problem instead of disagreeing. On the other hand, my mother demands respect, and she spanked me for being expelled from
One of my future goals and the most important one is to become a doctor. It is my life dream, and the only thing I am seeking for. Doctor is someone capable to save and help others life in ways that are not possible in other careers. Being a doctor for me is not just like any job, it is achieving a dream I have since I was 6 years old. One of the main reasons I picked this major is my family; my family members are almost all doctors, and my dad too.
