My over all goal is to help others. It has been my goal since I was a kid and I strive to do that today. My want to help others affects the way I live and what I want to do. I do quite a bit of volunteer work because I like to help those in need, I am a resident assistant at school so that I can help my peers, and I want to become a doctor for those same reasons. After graduating and gaining experience, I really want to open my own practice so that I can have more control over the financial part of medicine. Affordable health care is a big problem in the US and I hope that in the future, I can make healthcare affordable. Even if I can't help everyone, I want to help as many people as possible.
