My long term goals are set in stone, but the road after high school was a challenge in my early high school years, many friends telling me where they are going, and asking me the question “what are you going to do after high school”.

We never stop learning, each day we learn something new. I want to use the tools I have learned in high school to help me with my medical field study. People say I am very caring and quiet, which I think would be good in the medical field…
