Rheumatology is something a lot of people have never heard of before. A rheumatologist is a doctor that deals with the joints, tissue and autoimmune diseases. If I could earn a living doing what I love most it would be being a Pediatric Rheumatologist. Many people also think that there is no way a doctor who deals with joints and tissue could change the world. I was diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis when I was two years old. I saw a Rheumatologist all of my life so far and he changed my life. No one realizes how serious Rheumatoid Arthritis really is, especially in children. Imagine being a kid, watching all of the other kids run around and not being able to join them because your joints do not move like theirs do. I want to help kids be able to run and play with their friends. I want to change the world by allowing children to run freely and empower them to change the world themselves. I plan to do this by earning my Bachelor’s degree and my Master’s degree in Psychology. I then plan on going to Medical school and interning at a children’s hospital with a Rheumatologist as my mentor. This scholarship could help me achieve my goals of becoming a Pediatric Rheumatologist and changing the lives of many children.
