As freshman year ended and sophomore year started I was thrown for a loop as I developed gastrointestinal issues that prevented me from attending school. My grades dropped during this year, however, I was able to make the swap to homeschool. Since this swap I have been able to work hard and faster at acheiving my goal of becoming a otorhinolaryngology. My goals of helping people regain their ability to hear, a sense that underlies who we are as individuals are able to be achieved once again. Not only this, but I have also been able to learn who I am through the free time I have. Testing different careers and learning what I truly enjoy.
