When I was biology in 10th grade, the lesson plan changed to teach genetics. I knew I always liked genetics because I learned a little bit before this period. This point in my life, I thought I wanted to be a director; however, after this lesson, genetics stole my heart. I wanted to become a clinical geneticist with a Ph.D. I have always wanted to help people. It has always given me a large about of pleasure to help others. I think part of it is just who I am. The other part is I come from a poor family, who has always needed help. I know what it is like to have no one to help you. I do not want anyone to feel that way. It is terrible. That is part of the reason why I want to become a doctor. The other part of that is because I am so interested in human biology and biochemistry. I took all the science I could in high school because of it. I am a biochemistry major right now because of that interest. It is my passion. Lastly, I have always had this intense ambition. I never have wanted to die a nobody. I have always wanted to make some huge change in the world that will make this place a better environment to live in. I want to find the cure to cancer or create some type of new medication or treatment that could seriously impact the world for the better. I want to contribute my work to the world. I want my work to become my legacy. I want to die a somebody. I know with the right tools; I can make this all happen. What I am doing to achieve this dream is applying to the best school for me: University of Saint Joseph. Now I am trying to apply for scholarships, so I can get the schooling I need to make all of this true. After that, I will be going to medical school. Then I will complete a M.D./ Ph.D program. I will have fellowships and residency. Eventually, have a family and teach them that they can change the world. I will teach them to help everyone they can in anyway possible. I will teach them to always refuse to die a nobody. Everyone must become a somebody. I know I will.
