The words I want to say about becoming a doctor are not made because I have such a passion, drive, and want to become this. I have always wanted to be a doctor, but not because of the money. I always say that if I would be paid $1 a day as a doctor I would still always pick it. My want that is pushing me is that I get to put a smile on someone’s face. Yes, this seems so small in the grand scheme of things, but to me it matters so much. When you go into a hospital most of the time all you see is worried/sad faces or tears. Seeing a smile in a hospital is a rare occasion that I wish nothing more than to change that. I want to see more smiles in a hospital because happiness is a great form of medicine we never get to use. I have went through hell and back to pursue this career. I work two jobs, never sleep, and have hit every speed bump you could think of. I will continue studying, working, observing doctors, and getting as much medical training as I can so I can finally follow my dreams no matter what I have to do. I am writing this essay to help pay for college because I know in five-six years there is a smile waiting for me to put on someone’s face.
