In ninth grade I participated in a local breast cancer walk which broadened my mind regarding how many people were affected by the horrific disease of cancer. I desire to learn more information on cancer research, as well as additional health science research, so I can expand the minds of other people. Throughout my years of high school I’ve become more and more interested in the physical well being of others. Exercise and healthy habits is one area I feel Americans need more education. I want to make a difference in the world in this area. Too many people are not taking care of themselves and are possibly dying younger than they should.
I’m very open-minded about what health science program I would like to major in. I have a particular interest in physical therapy because there is a considerable amount of new patients with different problems to assist. I learned this through shadowing at Dr. Barry Moochler at his private practice. People came from all walks of life: the young and the old, injuries from sports or automobile accidents. Throughout my life I’ve taken care of my body by eating healthy and staying active. Over a period of ten years, gymnastics and cheerleading played a major role in helping me to stay fit and to live a healthy lifestyle. I know how important it is to take care of my body and I want to help other people take care of theirs as well. Taking care of injuries and preventing injuries is one area where I feel I could make a difference. Whether injuries come from playing sports or something as simple as poor posture, I’m looking forward to being taught how to make the lifestyles of others healthier.
The field of health sciences caught my eye because it is a topic of continuous change. There are many areas of this field that require constant learning which is precisely what intrigues me. I enjoy the constant variation of knowledge which keeps me fascinated. I don’t want just any job for the rest of my life. I’m looking forward to becoming a specialist in my field of study; not just someone who applies old knowledge to help people but one who is willing to learn more to help people in a better way.
