Hi, I chose to be in the biomedical pathway because ever since I was little I had this crazy thought that I can change the world no matter what, to make it better for others in this world and naturally I still fell the same way. To me this was really the only pathway that translated best to my thoughts. I grew up with no one in my family going straight to college, but I oddly knew, and was told many times that I would finish high school and go to college. My mom has said, “You can do anything you want, after college.” So its been official, this is the plan. I want to grow up and become an oral surgeon. When I was younger my grandpa was fighting cancer. I was over one summer and it wasn’t a regular one at all. I didn’t under stand what was going on, he was only ever on the couch trying to get as much rest as he could. No more water gun fights, no more telling on him when he would steal chocolate out of the jar, no more smiles. It was sad and tense for a long time. I didn’t understand what was happening, and I glad I didn’t, by the time I had, he had beat it, I was so proud, and still am today. But the chemo did almost just as much damage as the cancer, his teeth crumbled, his taste, almost gone. But then He went to the oral surgeon, and he smiled for the first time in a long time, and it was great. That happiness I felt, I just want to make some one else feel that difference. I want to help someone feel good about themselves, to help someone function easier so they can live there lives to the fullest. I want to make my family proud. Thats why I chose the biomedical pathway.
