I believe that one’s career should cultivate passion and fulfillment. I’ve always been enamored with science and during my adolescence I witnessed medicine’s capacity to have an incredible impact on our lives. At the age of five I marveled at the Cardiologists who extended my grandmother’s life for an additional eleven years with a heart transplant. Observing this miracle firsthand was the catalyst that inspired my strong sense of altruism. I was privileged to obtain an internship at a pediatrician’s practice, where I obtained a vivid glimpse of a physician’s daily routine. After my internship I concluded that a career in medicine would provide both intellectual and emotional fulfillment. Each day during my internship I saw young children being helped through the gentle treatments and compassion provided by the doctor. My heart swells with an unbridled surge of joy at the notion that I too could make a difference in the lives of others. In addition to my internship, I challenged myself with dual enrollment and college-level science curricula in order to prepare for my career as a physician assistant. My commitment to lifelong learning was substantiated in May of 2014 when I graduated from Mott Community College with my Associates of Arts and Associates of Science before I graduated from high school. Ultimately, my goal as physician assistant is to become a champion for health, wellness, and disease prevention in a wide variety of communities and healthcare environments.
