As I child I watched my mom get dressed in her scrubs and go to work to every morning, and I would always ask if I could come with her. On occasion she would say yes, and I would tag along and find myself sitting at the nurse’s station filling out my fake charts and talking to all of the patients as my mom made her rounds. After watching my mom for years, I knew I belonged in a hospital. Since that moment I have dreamed of be a doctor because I want to be able to make a difference in people’s lives. I want to be that person who can be the light when people are faced with the darkest time in their life. With my knowledge of medicine I wouldn’t want to limit myself to just helping those that can afford help, I want to help those who are less fortunate, that’s why I want to make it a priority to travel to third world countries and help people there. I want to help those who don’t get the luxury of stability. To achieve this big goal I have set many small goals. My first goal is to attend college and receive my undergraduate degree in Chemistry and with this I hope to return to Colorado and receive my medical license. It’s a long journey but I have the drive to push myself, so one day I can be the person that gives those who are sick hope.
