A cold sweat coated the night with tears and my breath came in feverish gasps as the ambulance whisked me away into the darkness. An overwhelming sense of confusion washed over me as the sirens blazed and my eyes took in the frightening sight of the medical equipment surrounding me. The only thing that kept me afloat in that sea of terror was the calm, experienced demeanor of the paramedic, my angel of salvation.
Ever since my asthma attack, I have been filled with a sense of awe for the world of advanced medical technology and with a desire to give back to the community. I’ve craved a deeper knowledge of biology so that I too can impact the lives of the sick or injured. I want to be the person to bring the comfort of education and scientific skill to the frightened. I want to save a life.
