Future career aspirations: I would like to attend a medical school in Florida and match into a competitive residency in anesthesiology. I plan to then become a traveling doctor that goes to third world countries and assist those who cannot afford the proper health care. Becoming an anesthesiologist would be a dream come true for me and it would show those who look like me that it is possible to make it out the low income area we grew up in and fulfill whatever it is we put our minds to.
Top 3 goals for your time abroad: My top 3 goals for my time abroad are to learn Spanish, to gain knowledge of the Mexican culture, and to gain insight into how to effectively communicate with others of different nationalities and how to better understand them.
