My dream is become a pediatric cardiologist. I have wanted this since I was a senior in high school during my AP Biology class. We studied the cardiovascular system and immediately, I was hooked. I love working with children. During my time at two local community colleges, I worked in a daycare and school. Every child put a smile on my face. I was able to help children learn simple things; when I showed a child how to cut a piece of paper properly, he expectantly embraced me and said, “Thank you Miss Dreya!” A child with a heart abnormality breaks my heart. I want to be able to help children and their families so that they don’t have to live a life constantly worrying if their child can or cannot perform a simple activity that most children can. Children should be able to run and play without a second thought and I want to be able to help children do these things. Surgery is expensive; I want to make sure that families are able to get medical care for their children with little to cost to them because high medical costs should not hinder a family from providing the best treatment for their child. Having my own practice outside of a corporate hospital would enable to ensure that families won’t have to worry about anything but their child receiving the best care that the child needs.
