I am a high school student who lives in Washington, DC. My father is working at the American high commission in London. Due to his busy schedules and costly relocations, we preferred to stay in our homeland. My father had a tough time while starting his career, and he didn’t want that his children to suffer at that time. Therefore he engaged me in social work and welfare activities since I was a child because my elder brother was groomed under my father’s supervision, and he gave him all the required lessons and training to be a perfect activist.

I had no aims in my life in the very initial stages, and because of my father and my elder brother, I was able to become beneficial to society. Now since I am about to finish high school, I am looking forward to opportunities to narrow down my interests in choosing a profession. I have developed an interest in becoming a social worker and appropriate training in healthcare, like a nurse. It would help me to groom my skills in providing service to the public. My brother had an excellent profile of working in Texas, Mexico, and China to give refuge to the people affected due to natural disasters.

I had a chance to visit the schools in the rural areas of Alaska to help the teachers and children with how to use First aid to give support to the injured ones in an emergency. My interest was already developed in healthcare, but after that day, it became a passion. We were demonstrating all the possible techniques to save a dummy body from dying. At that moment a boy fell from the window of some class and was found unconscious. The instructor, as well as the team leader, rushed toward him and gave him the proper treatment as well as examined all parts of his body by applying pressure to check the status of the bones. During all that time, I was with him and helped him to treat the boy. For the first time in my life, I was working on a real incident. The teachers and security officials tried to keep away the crowd, but my team lead, after examining the child as he was no more in an unconscious condition after giving him first aid, moved the body into a situation so that everyone could view it. In front of all of us, including the school students, he cleaned the injury areas and applied the injection of titans.

My commitment to healthcare social work strengthened, and I never stepped back in any chance to attend any training. I have a vast experience in the organization of the medical camp and working as a volunteer as well as paid member of the teams. The commitment to the work could be defined in the sense that I worked free of cost without concern of any reward. Most of my duties and participation were as a volunteer which let me learn some skills to manage people psychologically so that they won’t panic about the pain caused during the treatment process.

After completion of high school, I plan to relocate to a better university in California or Los Angeles. Choosing a health profession requires a proper and permanent commitment as well as complete attention in the learning period. This deals with human life and no doubt, little errors could lead to terrible and unrecoverable damage. I am very good at doing my job and have an excellent commitment to it. Moreover, I also have the relevant pre-skills and psychological stability for keeping sustained in the healthcare profession.
