to help others by bettering myself
The nursing profession appealed to me because it is one of the only professions where I could help other on a daily basis. There have also been many influential nurses in my life that inspired me to be just like them, caring and comforting. It is my dream to be able to help as many people as possible and getting a proper education will ensure that.

I want to show everyone that life is beautiful.
Through the study of psychology, I would love to help others and guide them to understand that no matter what bumps in the road they run into, they are not alone. I will help each and everyone one and show them that their life is beautiful. Life is an opportunity and we all have a purpose as to why we are put on this earth.

I yearn to enhance preventative/invasive medicine
Heart disease is a dark part of my family history. Heart attacks, Sclerotic Hypertension, and Cardiac Dysrhythmia have plagued my family and millions of others for years. I aim to be at the forefront of medical innovation of the interventional cardiology fields. Stents, Heart Valve Prosthesis, Hemodynamics, and Pacemakers are where I plan to start.

I Want to Create PROSTHESIS for children.
By being in several service activities I realize that helping someone is the best thing that you can do. I want to make my career out of this idea by implementing science and math. Ultimately, I want to become an MD-PhD with a concentration in biomedical engineering. It would be great to see my dreams come true by seeing others grow

MY GOAL IN LIFE IS TO BECOME A orthopedic surgeon.
Growing up, my father had many health issues that required him to spend a lot of time seeing different doctors and taking many medications. I would sit by his bedside not able to do anything that would help ease his pain. That feeling of helplessness is what motivated me to want to become a doctor.

use therapy to assist Veterans & present military
When I was in high school, I was a manager for the boys sports teams. Each day I would assist the physical trainer in helping the athletes before and after their sports. I didn't realize that would be my passion til now. I care Deeply for our veterans and present military. This is how I feel I can give back a little what they give so much for us.

I Will teach childRen with autism how to succeed
Working with children with autism drives me to make change in the world. Autism affects 1 in 88, which can be overwhelming for families. Many children need to learn the tools to succeed in every day life which can take time and patience. A scholarship would help me achieve a graduate degree specializing in tools needed to teach those skills.

My family drives me to achieve my goal. Being the first person on both sides of my family to become a doctor is big. My baby sister drives me to become a doctor because she hates it, I want to be that doctor that every child loves, instead of afraid. These diseases drive me to achieve my goal, one day I WILL find a cure for some of these diseases.

I want to uncover something about the human brain.
Amidst centuries of scientific research, the brain is still enigmatic. Discoveries in this era could lend themselves to helping serious conditions, and bettering lives worldwide.

I want to help women & girls realize their power
I am finishing my degree at CalState in Human Development. I want to work with women of all ages to encourage them to become powerful leaders in their communities and countries. Although equality is getting better, the world still has a long way to go to stop the demoralization of girls, especially in third world countries.
