At the age of nine, my uncle asked me what I wanted to become when I get older. In that moment the first thing that came to my mind was a doctor. I felt pressured to choose a doctor or a lawyer due to societal views of a good career. Despite my initial thoughts about being a doctor, developed a passion for children through babysitting, and observation. Which, Inspired me to pursue medicine to become a pediatrician.
When I took my first biology class my freshman year of high school, I knew that I wanted to aim for a career in the field of science, I just couldn't decide exactly what I wanted to do. It wasn't until my first anatomy class my junior year that I fell in love with the study of the human body, and figured out exactly what I wanted to become: a surgeon. I chose this as my career not only because of my love for anatomy, but also because I was infatuated with the idea that I could save people's lives every day and because I shared that same interest in medicine.
Education has been around for many centuries, but recently in the past 150 to 200 years literacy has changed. College comes after receiving the basic educational skills in middle school and high school. It has been debated continuously whether continuing education to college is quite necessary, or if it is just a complete waste of time. Many compare and contrast this topic because college can be expensive and time consuming. College education can improve one’s life for the good however, college is not for everyone.
I was never the kid who already figured out what career I wanted to pursue. In fact, I had no idea of where my life was heading after high school till AP Biology. AP Biology became the pivotal
As seniors in high-school we are always asked about what career we want to pursuit,and where we want to take our lives. I began thinking about what I like and what subjects I was good at. I found out I loved math and science and was good at them too. Then I knew that the health field was really for me. I began searching for ways for me to see if I really liked it, so I applied to go to scrubs health camp at Augsburg college near my house. I really liked it and saw that my love for kids had me leaning to becoming a pediatrician. I had my doubts on that also because of the number of years of schooling, and one day I stumbled upon a pediatric nurse practitioner occupation and began reading about it. I loved it so much that
I was indecisive of my future career path. My mom would tell me the classic “You should be a lawyer” or “You should be a doctor.” I would go along with her idea for a couple weeks until I jumped off the bandwagon. I wasn’t passionate about either of those fields; I was interested in both math and science and as a young girl. As I got older, I became invested in technology due to my love of gaming, but I didn’t know that people devote their lives to technology until I interned.
At 17 years old, I had the grueling task of deciding how I wanted to spend 40 plus years of my life. I always aspired to land a career in the medical field, so I majored in biology like most pre-med hopefuls, but during my junior year, I no longer desired to become a physician. The medical field was calling out to me, but the specialty of focus was incorrect. After graduation, I went back to the basics and put my nursing assistant certification to use.
Growing up I knew that I wanted to study science and explore the human body with the goal of helping people. With exploration of career options later in middle school, I realized that medicine was the path for me. My parents did not achieve Bachelor degrees and while I knew logically that they would support me, I did not have the confidence to pursue such a big dream. In high school, I became more and more involved and worked outrageously
It wasn’t until my senior year in high school when I realized that I needed to decide what to choose as a career field in which I actually had an interest in pursuing. My aunt handed me a bunch of pamphlets that dealt with a variety of different career types: business, criminal justice, education, etc. That was when I came across the healthcare field. I have always loved being able to help others as much as I am able to. There were plenty of field’s that sounded interesting but that’s when I came across the one that I was eager to begin my college career on.
During my first semester of college is when my idea of my ideal career changed. College is such an eye awakening experience. I learned more about myself and who I am then I could ever even have hoped to. I learned that a huge passion of mine was helping peo0ple, I got a genuine joy out of making people happy and making people feel better. After constant conversations with my parents we all concluded that maybe my major of business was not suited for me like we all had imagined and maybe possible career in the medical field would be better suited for me, which is why I decided to branch away from my major and research a more medical profession in this project. A nurse.
I was always undecided regarding the career that I wanted to pursue. As I got older and looked at many choices in careers I realized that I wanted to have a career in the medical field. Being a nurse interests me because it requires the study of the human body along with other great opportunities that nurses have in this career. I want to become a nurse because I like being able to help those who are in need.
I came into college knowing that I wanted to work in the medical field, but without really knowing what profession I wanted to pursue. There were many reasons why I wanted to pursue a career in the medical field which eventually led to pursuing a pharmacy career. One reason was wanting a career where I’m regularly
College is a great opportunity that I am blessed to be going through today. I see it as an opportunity to grow as a person and set myself up for the future I want. The success I have in the future will be greatly affected by how I do in college.
Throughout my life, I have worked towards one goal which is to become a doctor. Medicine offers the opportunity for me to integrate different scopes of science while trying to improve human life. Medicine has intrigued me throughout all my life because it??s a never ending
