Something that I love to do is help people. Before I was in kindergarten, I came across graphic photos of wounded people in a human anatomy text book. It stirred something within me. It wasn’t nausea or fear, but compassion and a desire to help these people. Since finding the photos, it has my dream to work in the medical field and help people in any way I can.
By becoming a CMA, I can change the lives of hundreds of people in my community and beyond. No matter where I go in the world, no matter what I do, I can, and always will, have the experience and knowledge to help people. In 2-3 years I plan on furthering my education to RN, but in the meantime, I will be gaining more experience in the medical field. And I will have a wide range of possibilities for job opportunities.
My plan is to stay in Alaska, and work at our Alaska Native Medical Center Primary Care Center. Being AK Native myself, I want to help my fellow Native people because there is a shortage of Native CMA’s, CNA’s, nurses and doctors.
In case of a natural disaster happening, I will have the ability to assist doctors, and nurses with patients. I can volunteer in emergency cases with drawing blood, dressing wounds, giving medication to those in need and much more.
Thank you for your time and consideration for the chance to get a scholarship to fulfill my lifetime dream.
