When I first entered high school, I wanted to be an Anesthesiologist. By the end of my freshmen year, I had found my love for international medicine. International medicine has become an interest to me because I’ve always wanted to study abroad. My goal is to make a contribution in the medical field in Japan. This location is important to me because I believe they have better technology than other countries. I'm still researching specific fields of interest, however I look to serve people 18 years of age and older.
I aspire to use my medical background to contribute to the advancement of technology in Japan because I believe their practices are safer than other countries. I have used the internet to research their practices and have found them captivating and interesting to me. My desire is to complete my undergraduate studies in America and then pursue the medical field in Japan.
Before I found my love for medicine, I discovered an interest in soccer. When I was seven years old I started kicking the ball around and my mom asked me if I would like to play soccer. I answered yes and she signed me up at the Kernersville Soccer Association (KSA). I remember being asked what positioned I wanted to play and I answered,” Right Back.” When no one answered to play Left Back I took up the opportunity to play as a Left Back.
After two years I was selected to play up in Piedmont Triad Soccer Club (PTFC). Since then I have played several positions and won several championships. Currently I’m playing at the varsity level of high school and continue to play up with PTFC. As a freshman, I was recognized as an honorable mention on the varsity level. During my sophomore year, I received all region, all conference, and outstanding athlete. These are just a few accolades I have achieved along with my team spirit and my ability to work with all levels of players. My personality allows me to be the glue that holds the team together. We are a team of 18 people and our coach looks to me as the most flexible player who never fights any decisions he makes. The team looks to me as a leader and the go to person. This allows me to show tenacity, trustworthiness, and determination needed to maintain a champion's mindset. I use the same champion mindset in my academics and I am ranked in the top 20 percent in my class of over 300 people. By the end of my senior year my goal is to be amongst the top 15 percent of my class.
