Any sports fanatic has heard about Athletic Trainers. Anyone who has watched, or has been to a sporting event, has seen the person who runs out and tends to the injured athlete on the field. That person is the team’s Athletic Trainer. While being strong and having skills are definitely needed to be a great sports player or succeed in keeping your body healthy and strong, it goes much deeper than that. Being an athlete or trying to maintain a healthy body weight requires knowledge of how the body works. Injuries are common for athletes, and those injuries require treatment. These are just a couple of things that require an Athletic Trainer. This scholar will give insight into their career goals and a further overview of the Athletic Trainer profession and why they are so very important to, not only athletes, but to anyone who may need help recovering from injury and learn how to prevent injury in the future.
I didn 't always know what career I wanted to go into. The first time I was in the position where I had to decide was in the eighth grade. For the yearbook, I had to give the name of the high school I planned to attend and what profession I chose to go into. The scraping of the lead against the paper made me feel tense. Everyone else had an idea of what they wanted to do in the future. When I was a junior in high school, I finally realized that I want to become a Speech Pathologist. This field of study is an extremely competitive one. My educational and professional career objectives include going to Kean University next fall, working towards obtaining a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree, and ultimately becoming certified and licensed.
It is my desire to attend the United States Naval Academy. My goal is to follow in my father 's footsteps as an officer in the naval branch of our armed forces. My father began his career as an enlisted seaman twenty years ago and is now serving as a Lieutenant.
At the age of____, I left everything behind in Armenia and migrated into the United States of America to start a new life. Even though I love my paternal land and do not forget where I come from, the fact that I could pursue a career and become a productive member of the society encouraged me to move to America. To my great misfortune, I was persecuted for being politically active in my own country and I could no longer fight with the authorities for violating my civil rights. I had the potential of facing more dangerous situations than I was already in at the time. I am my parent’s first child and they instilled their best efforts into providing the best education for me. They did not receive higher education and I was the first in my family.
Later in my life, I would like to study and become a chiropractor. I feel like this is an appropriate career for me. This is suitable for me because, it requires you to talk to your patients. I also like the idea of helping others figure out their issues, and getting them back to work. I feel like being a chiropractor would be a great job for me.
My career goal in the exercise science and wellness field would be becoming an athletic trainer. I enjoy playing and watching sports and have some knowledge about certain things that needs to be done when an injury occurs to an athlete. In ten years, I would expect to see myself working as an athletic trainer at Penn State University. My result of the Kiersey Temperament Sorter does support my career goal because the result showed my personality type is that of an artisan. An artisan has natural ability to excel at jobs that require hands on operations such as an athletic trainer.
Beatty, I have pursued relevant experience to prepare me for this career path. While boxing has taught me discipline and confidence, my physical therapist aide job has provided me with hands-on experience working with patients. With these experiences under my belt, I am ready for the next step on my path to medical school, then ultimately to become a Physiatrist. I can truly say that I will be successful in helping others with their conditions and continually learn from my mistakes along the process. This was all I needed to erase doubt, satisfy my desire and keep my mind focused on proceeding in my career
I personally believe that the Ohio State Academy would be a tremendous opportunity for me. I see the Academy as a way to get accustomed to the rigor of college, as well as an opportunity to push myself academically. It would allow me to graduate from college quicker, which would enable post-graduate studies to be a more feasible option. Rather then continuing to be held back in my education, the Ohio State Academy would let me excel past high school curriculum. Another major advantage of this post-secondary program is the, although counter-intuitive, ability to be more involved in my high school extracurricular activities. This is because of the nature of a college schedule, rather than a standard seven hour, five days a week schedule of high school, the college schedule would be more flexible as there is less lecture time in college and more independent studying.
My freshman year of high school was difficult for me to adjust to and I did not perform to the best of my ability on my biology honors midterm. Due to this discrepancy, I was unable to be accepted into the Science Honor Society in junior year. Although disappointed that a singular grade had the ability to decide a part of my future two years later, I continued to work hard, especially in my science courses. Junior year, I decided to challenge myself and take an AP Physics course, even though I had never taken a physics course prior. This class was excruciatingly demanding and a new experience for someone who had never taken an AP class before. Despite the challenge, I managed to earn decent grades that I was still proud of. Unfortunately, to
As we embark on a profession in Kinesiology we have to ask what field best fits me and my personality. Originally I wanted to pursue a Physical therapy career. As I studied further and understood the education aspect Physical therapy I realized I wanted to be part of the boot camp perspective of wellness and fitness. I wanted to join in on the fun while educating my client as well. Also, I have dreams of owning my own business and building my own brand at the same time. I want clients to understand I care about my business but I care about them as well.
When contemplating a career choice, I always knew that I was interested in the sports and medical fields. I just didn’t know exactly what direction to go in those fields of study. Although many of my friends have known for years what their career choice was, I have been somewhat undecided. I came to Indiana Tech knowing that I was interested in the medical field, but I hadn’t decided on anything specific. Throughout the past year, I have had four separate injuries from running, one requiring surgery. After spending much of my time with doctors and surgeons, I have decided to pursue a career as a Physician Assistant. Upon graduating from Indiana Tech, I plan to attend graduate school to obtain a Master of Science degree in Physician Assistant Studies. There I will obtain the skills needed to pass the certification exam. In this career, I'll have the opportunity to give examinations, diagnoses, and treat patients under a licensed physician.

This scholarship is a wonderful opportunity for students of GVSU, and I am honored to be considered for this scholarship. I believe that I am a great applicant for this scholarship, and that I deserve this scholarship. One reason I deserve this scholarship is because of my strong academic courses. Throughout my high school career, I pushed myself academically by taking a total of 10 AP classes and 7 honors classes. These classes were all challenging, yet I pushed through with determination to complete the classes to the best of my ability. My high school is highly competitive and I’m grateful that I was surrounded by such wonderful peers and teachers. Completing high school, I received 12th place out of almost 450 students, with a weighted GPA of 4.244. Despite my hard course load,
Who am I, where am I going, and how do I plan to get there? That is a really good question. To begin with, I am the only child of Martha Ramirez and Rosario Ramirez. I come from a family where not a lot have finished school, but are grateful for what they do have. Throughout my life I have learned to be grateful for everything that I have, to be someone in life, and to follow your heart no matter the situation.
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. I have been growing up seeing my dad as a doctor, and he really loves his job, so automatically I got it from him. Many people pick this major to make money, but my dad always says, “This job is not for making money as much to help people and save their lives”. He taught me that people don’t have to pay to check their health, if they are not able to pay it is not a problem, you do your job as you should do and he always say if you care about money in this career, you won’t be successful at it. That is how I initially begun picking this major.
