After high school I will plan to pursue a career in medicine. My grandfather and father are both physicians and I aspire to take the same path as they did. My grandpa grew up in a small village in the Philippines. He came to America with very little and chose to become a doctor. He continues to work in this profession at 83 years old. My dad motivates me to become a doctor, not only because he is a great physician, but because he has been through a double lung transplant and a battle with cancer in his life time. Experiencing first hand my dad’s challenges, struggles and perseverance inspires me to work to become a doctor and help others. Both are great role models and I feel I have the empathy, work ethic and perseverance that they taught me. Playing college level soccer has also been a goal of mine since I was young. I appreciate being a team player and the dedication required to take leadership and get results. This inspires me to take my experiences with my family and as varsity captain to succeed in college and eventually become a physician.
