Unfortunately, this fate is shared among many child soldiers, either separation, or sometimes even being orphaned according to Invisible Children, an organization founded to spread awareness and stop the use of child soldiers. “Over one million orphaned, over six million have been left seriously injured or permanently disabled and over 10 million have been diagnosed with psychological trauma.”(Invisible Children).

While the medical field has always intrigued me, having compassion and helping others has always come naturally to me. After working alongside a speech pathologist in the hospital, it has become my greatest ambition and goal in life, to become a well-rounded, competent, and versatile speech pathologist.

Just from the word bastard, the audience is able to understand the very judgmental life Hamilton faced since birth. His father’s rejection and abandonment left him with his dying mother, Rachel, which resulted in Hamilton becoming an orphan at the age of thirteen. Chernow also discusses how “Rachel, James Hamilton, and their children moved from Nevis to St. Croix, where Rachel had once been imprisoned for several months on charges of adultery, and how James Hamilton abandons Rachel and his natural children shortly after arrival, leaving young Alexander without a father figure” (Miltimore). After being left on his own, Hamilton faced many tragedies, but he was able to overcome them and accomplish many things. Since Hamilton 's mother had been charged with adultery, she was viewed as a whore.
Overcoming obstacles and improving myself through clinical experience, I learned of other essential qualities needed for success in the field. My greatest time of growth was during my junior residency in internal medicine. Working closely with physicians and developing a rapport with patients, I greatly enjoyed experiencing several areas of the field, from outpatient medicine to ICU to CCU. While the days were long and demanding, I left each night knowing that I had helped relieve my patients’ illness. That’s the reason I am only applying to Internal Medicine as my career; I am the type of person who has always had an acute awareness of other people’s suffering, which has led me to be an empathetic and caring physician.
