I have always known what I love most is helping people. Early in my childhood I knew specifically I wanted to help people medically. The idea of being a doctor has always appealed to me. I have never thought of or wanted to do anything else. In my opinion there is no better way to change the world.
They way I would change the world doing what I love the most is by changing one world at a time. Most people want to change the world, but believe it cannot be done. I believe that if I can change one person’s world at a time, that changes the world. Everyday I could change someone’s world and in turn change the whole world. However, there are a few hurdles on the road to physician hood.
In order to become a doctor, eight years of schooling and at least three years of postgraduate residency are required. This demands a lot of time, energy, and money. My first goal is to get through four years of undergraduate school, earn a competitive GPA, and ace the MCAT in order to bulk up my medical school application. Next, I will power through another four years of school, maintain a high GPA, and ace the licensing board exams in order to secure a spot in a top residency program. Finally, complete my residency and earn my license.
This will not be an easy road, but it is how I will leave my mark on the world.
