Growing up I always heard my parents say “Do something you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.” Some people spend their lives not really knowing what they want to do. I was lucky enough to learn at an early age that I love to help people and enjoy making their lives better.
My passion for helping others is what motivated me to pursue a degree in biomedical engineering. Biomedical engineers work towards advancing different aspects of the medical field. They can specialize in designing artificial organs and limbs, genetic engineering, designing of medical devices, just to name a few. The advancements made by biomedical engineers have helped to improve the quality of life of people everywhere. Biomedical engineering is the culmination of my love for math, science, and a desire to help others.
My dream of becoming a biomedical engineer is already underway. I recently graduated from Northwestern Connecticut Community College in May where I received an A.S. in liberal arts and science. I am now a student at the University of Connecticut, Storrs campus where I am taking classes in preparation for my application to the biomedical engineering program. In order to succeed I am prepared to spend a large quantity of time on my studies and seeking extra help if difficulties arise. The road towards earning my dream job is sure to be labor intensive, but I am prepared to work hard and persevere in order to live my dream and make a difference.
