As individuals, everyone has their own endeavors in their life. I strive for complete success. I do not stop until I have achieved my goals. I let nothing stand in my way. As one of my favorite sayings quoted from Thomas Jefferson “I find that the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have”. If I have my mind and my desire anything I put my mind to I can achieve. My definition of success is completing a goal or a dream which you have always had. To me creating your own success helps you achieve true happiness. My happiness is helping others.
Ever since I was little, I always wanted to help others. From helping my parents around the house, to trying to save a little bug from being squashed. I would even get upset when my father and brother would go fishing, since the hooks harmed the fish. My desire to help others did not stop at animals. I wanted to help those who were in need. Growing up, I have come to the realization that my goal in life is to assist others in need. The word “others” mean everything from humans to animals, both aquatic and land, to the earth itself. As it came time to think about college and my major, I did not know with path of helping I should take, so I chose marine biology. After a semester of courses this major did not fulfil my dream. I then switched to public health. It did not take long for me to fall in love with the major. Through these classes, I have pushed myself to fully comprehend each direction of the major. After the course Epidemiology, this is where I knew I want to be. I am in the process of pursuing my dreams, potentially applying to medical schools.
