My primary goal in life is to serve with Doctors Without Borders, or Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), a medical humanitarian organization comprised of men and women who dedicate their time and well-being to improving lives all over the globe. I have wanted to be a physician since I was three years old, stitching up my baby-dolls and sticking bandages on people’s “boo-boos.” I could spend a lifetime tending to the ill, and honestly, I would do it for free. The individuals who work with MSF are some of the bravest beings on Earth. Daily, they risk being infected with deadly diseases, as well as being injured/killed by the terrorist attacks that occur within the war-ravaged regions they serve. One day, I hope to have been able to permanently improve the lives of those I serve in undeveloped/developing countries. I want to be up close and personal with the less fortunate, humbled and made aware of the millions of lives in dire need of change and peace. I will spread awareness to those around me and stir up a new level of appreciation within my own nation, and encourage my peers to lend a helping hand in whatever way they can. In order to accomplish these goals, my education must be completely paid for by scholarships and I need to be academically competitive for the next eight years. If I am financially settled, I can focus my efforts on studying and getting into a prestigious medical school!
