Ever since I was young, my father has always told me that if I enjoy what I do, it won’t feel like work. To me, I have always enjoyed helping others. After along three years of soul searching and deep thought, I finally chose what makes me happy and pushes me to my limits. As a sophomore in college, I have already begun my long journey of education in Biomedical Sciences. Due to a very powerful personal experience one summer while working with my church, I have decided to become a doctor with a specialty in orthopedics. My biggest goal—at the moment—is to complete my schooling at one of the most prestigious medical schools in the country; John Hopkins Medical School. I personally feel that there, I would receive the best education. Upon graduation from medical school, I plan to work with our U.S. Military and help those who are defending our great nation and keeping us safe. Due to my background in mechanics that I had received in high school, I will conduct studies and trials, determining the best treatments for patients who have lost limbs that have undergone amputations. My ultimate goal is to create one of the best prosthetics to not only save the lives of those who keep us the land of the free, but to also show them my thanks and gratitude for all that they have done by giving them back certain abilities that they would have otherwise lost forever.
