Throughout my life i have always struggled with anxiety, always reflecting on actions i made, or words i said, and the thing that i have always worried about the most was what people thought of me in regards to my usefulness. I haven’t really acknowledged it until very recently that i really get my high from helping people. Whenever someone asks for help, i really cannot think of a time i said no to helping someone in need.
So after much though and research i have decided i am going to go to school to become a physician assistant. Only in the last few months of reflection i have found that thing that i really want most in my life is to feel like i matter, and what better way to do that than to dedicate my education and life to helping fix others. That’s why i am volunteering at Columbia St Mary’s in Milwaukee while i am in school and i would be very grateful if i were able to revive this scholarship to peruse my dreams of saving lives and helping others.
