I love people and solving their problems; like complex living puzzles. Thus it has always been clear to me that if I could hold any position, I would be a doctor. Everything about medicine is fascinating to me: the human body, characteristics of bacteria and viruses, the research, healing people. My dream would be to study the rare diseases that are so difficult to diagnose with the broad knowledge of a general practitioner that the victims of these diseases live in a state of unknowing and hindrance of healing for years. To be able to end suffering and improve the quality of life of people in need is my passion. An ultimate goal would be to work for Doctors Without Borders following my education and paying off any loans or debt I have acquired. To achieve these goals I applied to the University of Washington, for its respected pre-medicine program and got in. Next I will attend medical school—hopefully at University of Washington School of Medicine—and then perform my internship and residency at a hospital. Considering the many expensive years of schooling and my families limited ability to contribute I will be working as well as applying to scholarships through these years to try and make my dreams a reality. I feel that with my passion and drive I could change the way that this country—and possibly the world—diagnose disease, and bring better health care to the people that need it.
