The healthcare sector offers a variety of professional opportunities that include pediatric, geriatrics, public policy and many other areas in which I hope to make a impact towards. I have always been intrigued by medicine and continue to gain more interest in public health. In the future, I desire to combine both medicine and public health by participating in an MD and MPH program. My experiences and education provide me with constant motivation in achieving my goals.
During my sophomore year of high school, one of my teachers approached me and asked if I was interested in a job for the summer at the country of a local country club. While I was nervous at first, I accepted the job, and have now completed two successful summers there. The experience of having a summer job taught me many things; and as I continued to take on more and more responsibilities over the summer, I learned even more about how to be responsible at all times and to empathize with someone in order to understand their perspective and to help improve their experience.
My job was to assist in areas involving home renovations, home repairs, and landscaping in the Washington D.C. area. I also was heavily involved in a summer camp program that I have been volunteering for the past seven years during the summer. This camp is geared towards Hispanic children of low-income families living in an affordable-housing apartment complex community that is influenced greatly by local Hispanic gangs such as MS-13. One of my primary jobs was to mentor and teach these kids how to make the right decisions and be a positive influence in this
Several years ago, my appendix nearly ruptured and I had to have surgery. At that time, the staff was caring, kind, and aware of my pain, and the environment was never boring. Everyone was in a rush, and there was never a dull moment. The atmosphere is exhilarating; nurses, doctors and emergency medical technicians are always in a rush to help patients. Afterwards, I realized I wanted to help people in the same way the medical personnel helped me. This inspired me to pursue my EMT certification, but my ultimate goal is to attend medical school and become a surgeon. To be able to pursue my dream, I hope to attend (School) because of the strong curriculum and capable instructors.
As a lifeguard, it is my personal responsibility and duty to preserve the peacefulness and protect the lives of every patron that enters the pool. This holds true especially at Baker Park (Edward P. Thomas Jr. Memorial Pool), for the pool often reached maximum capacity within an hour of opening, not including the daily two hundred children we get from day campps, such as Boys and Girls club and YMCA. While I guard the pool and perameter, it is crucial to exhibit all three qualities of Ready, Respectful, and Relentless, for anything can happen instantly which can interfere with the public safety of everyone, including myself.
My job was called, an athletic trainer's assistant/water girl. The other two girls and I, as well as the athletic trainer at times, worked together as a team. While I was helping the trainer, the coaches, and the football team, I was earning community service hours on something that I loved to do and wanted to continue doing for the rest of my life. The trainer eventually got a job just for my school and became a teacher and the athletic trainer for all sports at the
As a freshman in high school I got interested to get involved in the city as a youth commissioner. Being a youth commissioner gives you the chance to get some hours and help out with special occasions in the city. I put in a total of six hundred hours for three years. When I was finally old enough, I got hired for my first job in the city as a camp recreation leader for a summer camp. Now I only work at a fast food Mexican
Assisted young children between the grades of preschool to 8th grade in their education. I decided to volunteer because the children of today will be the children of the future and the more smart and educated they are the better they will be in the future. Another reason I helped was because it is hard for young children to adapt to the lifestyle of constantly moving from one place to another. Since their parents are migrants it can have a negative impact on them and their education. I remember one little girl is from Florida but every summer her parents move up to Michigan to work in the fields, but once the harvest is over they move back to Florida. She was behind in school and with the help of teachers and myself we motivated and helped her out so she was able to catch up. I really enjoyed volunteering the past two summers ago at the summer migrant program. If I had another opportunity to help I
I did lot’s over spring break including pretty much just working for Daniel Lapp all spring break and i got to hang out with Shauna. We went and rode horses and had lots of fun and then when her dad got home I would go to work. The first job I had was digging a ditch with a backhoe for him for a waterline and that was a learning experience. And it took me about three days to finish digging the waterline. It was a lot of work but good for me. Get’s me out of the house. The next job we had was we went and burnt fields, now this job was fun and really hot. We had to take a water trailer with us because if we didn’t, the fire would get out of hand real quick. We finished that then the next day we had to clean sheep and cow pens and that was fun,
In addition to working full time and attending school as a full time student, I shadowed a Dosimetrist and a Radiation Therapist at Gamma West Cancer Services for approximately 30 hours over a one month period. This job shadow included participation in the care of cancer patients and use of computed tomography. I have had multiple opportunities to serve the people in my community and in other communities near me. I have had the privilege to volunteer with the Boy Scouts of America for two years. This has allowed me to mentor and aid young men in learning life skills, service, leadership, overcoming obstacles, and the power of hard work. I have been able to participate in multiple Eagle Scout projects including helping collect and package
This job also gives me a chance to impact the lives of the campers I am working with. I am doing this by helping them have the experiences and memories every child deserves. They are learning social behaviors and how to interact and build relationships. This camp gives these kids a sense of normalcy and fun. I have built relationships with children who had started off not liking me but by the end of a week of camp they are comfortable and have fun with me. They know they will always have a place at Camp Munroe and I love being a part of that experience for
Firefighting is a career that can make you feel proud and accomplished, and it is a career in which I have a lot of respect for. In order to be a firefighter you must be in shape, prepared, experienced, and ready to deal with your job emotionally as well as physically. I chose to be a firefighter because I want to be able to help others and make them feel safe to live in their communities.
The day I went in for volunteering, I was positioned as a phone attendant answering phone calls to anyone who had questions about YMCA, I was given a packet of information to be able to answer those questions. I answered my first call and was able to successfully help the person with their question but I did not enjoy this position as much because it felt more like work than volunteering. After
About three years back, I had just turned sixteen and had finished 10th grade so I was enjoying my summer vacation just like other kids enjoying their summer vacation after a long school year. One day, my mother said I should get a job. She said it would teach me how to
It was in December, during my Christmas vacation, when I decided to start looking for a summer job. There were many options but the job I decided to apply for was a position as a lifeguard at a waterpark. I filled out an application and was accepted almost immediately. The only thing left was the lifeguard training; little did I know that it was going to be an experience I would never forget.
