      Ever since I can remember, I've wanted to do something in the medical field. At one point I thought it was physical therapy, but as I got older, I realized that nursing was a passion of mine that I never knew I had. After I graduate high school, I will be attending Clemson University, and I was offered direct acceptance into their nursing program. While I major in nursing, I'm thinking about minoring in ASL (American Sign Language) as there is such a big need for translators within hospitals themselves. As of right now, I want to work as a labor and delivery nurse for a few years after graduating before trying to reach my ultimate goal. One of my biggest passions, aside from helping people in a professional standpoint, is traveling. I love seeing new places and experiencing new cultures, which is one reason that I want to become a travel nurse. Although the United States has its own issues when it comes to making healthcare accessible and affordable, we are better off than many other places. When some people become travel nurses, they want to go to all of these tropical places or even places that just attract tourists throughout the year. I want to do some of that, but I also want to make sure the people that have little to no medical access have a chance at getting the help that they need. Medical assistance throughout the world is nowhere compared to what we have in the United States, and that just doesn't sit right with me. I feel as if everyone in the world should have the ability to seek the medical attention that they need when they need it. Poverty-stricken countries will never have some of the things that we have when it comes to medical advancements. I want to be someone who shines a new light on places like this. Some people might be afraid to put their foot out there and go to a place that might not have "the best reputation" but I'm someone who is willing to do it. I've lived my entire life with a passion to help people, and of course, there are people in the United States that need help, but there are more people that are willing to work here and help these people. I want to be a person who goes out and helps the people that are typically overlooked, I want to make a change.
