Ever since I was in high school, I developed a love towards the health sciences. Once I came to college, I knew I wanted to study something related to medicine. So I decided to major in Emergency Medical Services. Eventually I became a volunteer Agora Crisis Center, and later on was able to get a job as an EMT-Basic at a private ambulance service. Life was good, and at that rate I would become a paramedic in no time. But fate had other things planned for me.
A few months after working as an EMT, I developed pain and numbness in my right leg/hip. The doctor told me I suffer from bursitis, and therefore could not do any kind of heavy lifting anymore. So, that was it. No more EMS for me. So, I switched my major to Spanish, and a minor in professional writing.
I was lucky enough to find a career that combines two of my passions: languages, and medicine. Now, my dream job is to become a great a medical translator/interpreter. Currently I’m in my last semester of college, and I’m very excited about it. I feel like I am back on track and doing what I’m supposed to be doing. In a way, I know I can start changing the world and people around me, little by little. By being the best provider and professional worker I can be.
