The first year of college I studied business so that I can travel the world, meet new people, and experience different cultures. I wanted to make friends with someone and the only common language we speak is love. I wanted to see the most beautiful capabilities of humans, to help a fellow species regardless of their race, gender, or religion, and give meaning to my life. As I continued my studies I realized the business world would not allow me to really connect with humans beyond a superficial level. I wanted a deeper connection, so I found my calling to become a doctor. More specifically, a dentist. Unlike most dentists, I wouldn’t need to sacrifice traveling to help people, but actually need to travel to help people. People brush their teeth, but dentists see and clean what others cannot. No matter how far back the tooth, dentists make sure the entire mouth is well maintained. I would like to take care of the world with that mentality; no matter how far the patient, to help the people that cannot be reached, like the farthest molar in the mouth, is my responsibility. Networking with classmates and coworkers, I will strive to organize a group of volunteer doctors that travel to help the helpless, teach the uneducated, and make the world a better place. These traveling doctors would be funded through widely advocated fundraisers and charity events. The ultimate goal is to eventually have doctors from all parts of the world participate.
