I was a senior in high school in 2006, excited about senior pictures and graduating, something a normal senior would be enthusiastic about. Driving on a normal day, something unexpected happens; I crashed my car into a truck that ran a stop sign. When I awakened, there were flashing lights, loud sirens and people in my face asking me questions. The pain was excruciating and as a 16 year old girl, I was scared to death. A friend of my parents was an EMT on scene, and I clung to her, she was my rock that kept me from freaking out as they cut me out of the car and transported me to the hospital. I have been an EMT-Basic for 3 years and I strive to be that person, that rock in scary situations for people such as myself who have experienced of being in a car accident. In my 3 years, I have worked as firefighter, an EMT in emergency situations of 911 and in private services. No matter the injury, sickness, or just a private transport, I strive to make my patients as comfortable and calm as much as I can, as I know first-hand how frightening it can be. In my experience, I feel I can do all I can with the certain limitations and would love to further my education and training to help out the individuals in my community, now and in the future. There is a demand for Paramedics in my area, and need more people like me, who are devoted and compassionate.
