I had difficulty finding and keeping a doctor as a youth, and my health suffered for years. I've become extremely passionate about serving patients in medically underserved communities, reaching out to children in those communities who may lack a sense of purpose in their lives, like me as a child, and helping them walk through their journey and realize their potential. I look forward to serving those in need through the National Health Service Corps in primary care, especially people within my locality. This opportunity is specifically significant for me as someone who grew up in a healthcare deficit, low-income community and was raised within a single-parent household. Being from a marginalized area, I strongly desire to pay it forward and be a role model for others from impoverished environments. For instance, I volunteered with Students Together Achieving Remarkable Success (STARS) at Marywood University, where I tutored and mentored Latinx youths from the Scranton area. This experience gave me greater insight into an individual's impact on others. One of the students mentored was noticeably shy and anxious around others. Though we came from different backgrounds and ethnicities, I saw qualities of myself in him. We worked to help him set goals, career aspirations and define who he aspires to be. It was an extraordinary experience to influence someone, and I recognized my struggles and watched them grow. As a future PA, I passionately look forward to similar moments where I get the opportunity to have a positive influence on patients' lives while providing support and care through their adversities. Along with directly serving underserved communities as a Physician Assistant, I plan to advocate for fair, equitable healthcare. I hold several leadership positions currently at Marywood University, including vice-president of an honor society, and plan to continue leadership in PA organizations.
