As a high school junior with a passion for the sciences and medicine, my future plans involve pursuing a career in healthcare and science. My desire to help others and make a positive impact on their lives has led me to pursue different opportunities such as volunteering at local hospitals, shadowing physical therapists and taking every science class available to me. I hope to attend a top medical university and major in a science field ultimately attending medical school and becoming a doctor.
