Bio

Growing up, I have been in and out of hospitals, not for one specific chronic illness but rather for many unrelated ones. Because of this, from a young age, I knew I wanted to work in a medical setting myself. I want to be someone who helps those in a hard time. More specifically, I want to be a nurse or physician's assistant. These people have the most patient interaction, and I know they make or break your experience at the hospital. Furthermore, I want to be a person who can help bring joy to those in challenging times because I have an idea as to how they feel, as I have been in a similar situation numerous times.

    Education means having knowledge about the world around me and being able to think in my way about things. It means having insight into everything happening around me and being able to understand. Education is something that opens opportunities in life. Education is when I sit in a class, grasped by what the teacher is saying, engraining every word into my mind and taking it all in. I am so interested that I consume it all and know this will be useful. In my education, I know the teachers around me do not want to waste their time teaching us meaningless things; therefore, I know everything taught to me is worthwhile and something I should give 110% of my attention to. My mom has always told me that education will open doors for me and take my life to the next level; it is because of this that I always give it all my effort. My parents did not make the most money, but I hope to provide for them in the future and make them proud. But, most of all, I want to make myself proud in my education and know that I have taken in all the information I could and applied it in something that will do good to others. I have many aspirations in life, but my biggest goal is to become a physician's assistant or CRNA. I want to be a person people see in the hospital and let them know I am there to make them feel better and to comfort them. I want to walk into a room and make the patient feel as close to home as possible. I want them to know I am on their side and have their best interest in mind. I want to use all the education I have received in my mind to comfort those who have found themselves unwell as I have been in their position, and I will forever be grateful to all my doctors and nurses. They truly made every hospital experience a good one. I want to be like this for others who find themselves in a position I have often been in. Alongside this, I also have a passion for traveling. I want to see the world and experience all the different cultures outside the United States. I not only want to travel there for fun and " just because," but I want to volunteer everywhere I go and impact people anywhere I can because I know I am very blessed and should pass on blessings to others.
