If I could earn a living doing what I love most, I would do epidemiological research and study the causes and potential cures of cancer. This would change the world in a major way because by identifying causes and potential cures to cancer, individuals would no longer have to deal with the emotional and/or physical struggles and hardships that come along with either having cancer or having a loved one that has cancer. To make this dream a reality, I currently plan on finishing up my bachelors degree and then going on to get an MPH and PhD in Epidemiology and then looking for a research position at either a university or a company that specifically deals with cancer research.
