Ever since I was a little girl my dream was to grow up and be a doctor, and i still have that dream. My choice of major is Biology: Anatomy and Physiology to later go on to medical school and become an ER physician. I feel like I have always been push to be a doctor and that is why I just ended up really getting into it more and more as I grew older. I actually grew up with a variety of people in the medical field including my mother, which is when I truly realized that science and the human body fascinated me. I was ten when my mom decided to become a Medical Assistant (MA), and she would always take me to her classes with her and i remember I was just always so mesmerised by the idea of the human body.
My intent is to work there for a year or two, gain skills and confidence. Then I plan to continue my education to acquire my bachelor’s degree and then my master’s degree, I would also like to learn more about hospice and palliative care nursing. Eventually, I would like to develop and sharpen my skills towards hospice and palliative care. Why, you may ask? I had a touching experience with home hospice care, my father passed away in 1992 after a short fight with metastatic colon cancer, the hospice nurses were wonderful and loving, the way they not only cared for him but everyone in the family.
Although I was focused on pursuing a career in the law I was also intrigued by the medical field. I was exposed to the world of medicine from a very young age. My mother, sister, and grandmother all had careers in the field. I was always the selected person to help them study for a quiz, practice a procedure on, and to hear about their stories from work. Their careers seemed fascinating.
I wanted to make something happen that had a more important meaning. Making crafts and helping with my friend’s fair animals was great and I will always love those memories; however, I wanted to make a change. After doing a 4-H project on my family history, I realized that too many people in my life have been taken from me because of one disease: cancer. I knew right away that other people want to make a difference and find a cure to cancer too. This is when I realized I wanted to take all the skills I gained through 4-H and lead my peers in a team through the American Cancer Society Relay for
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.
Ever since I was about 8 or 9 years old I always knew I wanted to be something in the healthcare field. I knew that I was interested and fascinated by the human body and wanted to learn more. I was always exposed to the healthcare field because my grandmother was CNA and my great grandmother was a registered nurse. So growing up around them I learned a lot of medical things. When I finally got to middle school and it was my 8th-grade year and we were planning for 9th-grade year, that was where I finally decided that I was going to enter the health science academy at the high school I would be attending.
My Field as Occupational Therapy I described Occupational Therapy as the field to help all kinds of people with disabilities or who need help to have more prosperous standard of living. This career has a complex concept but the main goal of the Occupational Therapists is understand the different need of the client and improve their daily activities. I always been interested in the medical field especially in the pediatric setting. When I came to this country, I spent almost two years finding what I wanted to study. While I was doing research, I am taking class to improve my English and gain time to be sure my future career.
The trauma of losing the people I loved the most to preventable illnesses was overwhelming and it planted a desire to promote health and treat the sick. I have been pursuing a career in medicine to help people live long and healthy lives for themselves and their families. It has been 18 years since I made the decision to pursue a career in medicine and there are three influential experiences that have shaped my interest in medicine:
I became very sure of my quest to become a public health professional during my National youth service Corps (NYSC) year in my home country Nigeria. I had the opportunity of working as a medical officer in the very remote village healthcare setting. During my service year with the NYSC, I discovered that minor ailments, usually from infections, and some with fatal consequences, could have been prevented and many lives saved if it were not for the fact that those effected believed that the illnesses were evil spiritual afflictions or resulted from a curse by God. I was especially struck by the sight of a young child at the Children's emmergency ward with severe heel burns resulting from the superstitious belief that febrile convulsion was caused
Though I may not meet the little girl who broke her leg falling from the jungle gym or the elderly man whose life journey will succumb to cancer, it is the ability nonetheless to have an impact in the healthcare of so many different individuals that I find very appealing. Radiology is also a highly specialized field, yet it requires diligence and a desire for knowledge in many different areas of medicine. My research experience has allowed me to cultivate these crucial
After the shadowing program, I attended a 4-week program at the University of Pennsylvania called PennMed. Most days involved exciting activities, such as learning to suture, CPR, performing an ultrasound on ourselves, and even studying anatomy using real corpses. It was during the last two days of the program where I discovered how interested I am in conducting undergraduate research. I’m not sure if it was the silence, everyone’s concentration, or the fact that their research in immunotherapy for treating cancer was going to potentially save millions of lives, but I was immediately drawn to that environment. I could literally see myself being part of that, learning and research, at the Undergraduate Teaching Labs, or in any other research opportunity that JHU offers.
