The Journey Ever since I have been a little kid people have always asked me what I want to be when I grow up. Just a couple years ago is when I actually got a feel for what I want to do for the rest of my life. I have figured out that I would like to go to a four year university, cheer in college, and go to medical school. One of the most important things for me to accomplish in life is to go to a four year university. I have worked really hard in school to keep my grades at a 3.5 G.P.A. or higher.

At one point during my life in college I would like to be accepted into a medical program. I would need to be accepted into a medical program to become an L&D nurse or a stem cell researcher. Going to UCLA would actually really help with this because they already have a medical program at UCLA so if I got accepted into it, I wouldn’t
