I may not have a fancy internship in the medical field. I may not have many official volunteer experiences in the medical field. However, I do believe my passion I have nurtured pays off. My community service is well beyond the expectations for graduation, more than 100 hours. My extracurriculars are always dedicated to helping others. Even my friends come to me due to the comforting qualities I obtain. Thus, I revealed a strong commitment in doing service for others, showing potential in the medical field. To add on, I always step up to help someone in need, no matter what type of situation occurs. In some situations, working under pressure is no big deal for me as I am always faced with demanding standards and can control the situation. I am the oldest in my family as well so I can handle multiple responsibilities at once while working well with others. However, I am still able to retain my individual mind. I have dedicated my education to start on this path with my exceptional advanced science classes. I already have a head start in college with my solid foundation dedicated to classes pertaining to nursing. I am prepared and willing to always learn more, to strive more. I will stop at nothing to get to where I desired to be, no matter the cost. That is what makes me the perfect candidate to be part of this …show more content…
At one point, I have dealt with depression. It affected my performance in school during my sophomore year, as grades started to slip. I lost all motivation and purpose to work hard in school, but I knew this slip up could ruin any possible potential of succeeding in the future. Getting out of this hole signifies one of my biggest accomplishments. I had a bump in the road, I confess, but I was able to still move onto bigger things. It was hard for me to open to people and socialize at this time, but I manage to go everyday and fill it with a purpose. I picked myself back up all on my own and moved on. Lastly, I am facing another challenge right now. My grandma has been recently diagnosed with cancer. She is one of my biggest supporters throughout my life and there is a possibility she cannot even watch her first grandchild graduate. Everyday, I try to look at the bright side, praying that medicine will help her live. I love her very much and since this news is significant, it pushes me more and more to be part of the medical field to make her proud just like what my mom did. I want to help families who are suffering through this exact situation, making their journey of cooperating with this sickness smooth as possible, as a nurse with a relatable

I looked into pharmacy, then dietetics, however while both are very important fields they also seemed very sedentary and monotonous. I appreciate a fast paced work environment and feel satisfied when I know I’ve finished my day having conquered challenges and handled any curve balls thrown my way. After having been with my grandma while she was in and out of the hospital for the later part of 2014 and then again for the birth of my niece I was able to watch many different types of nurses in action.…
