Goals and Dreams
By Rose K., a High School Ventures Scholar from
Ever since I was four years old I have wanted to be
a pediatrician due to my love of children. When my mother
was a young girl she had dreams of becoming a medical
doctor but her family was not behind her 100% of the
way. She could not fulfill her dream but she came close
by becoming a nurse. Now that she has me and knows what
my goals are, she is focusing all her energy and support
towards that goal.
My dream is to become a medical doctor one day. I want
to serve the community. My parents have done a large
amount of great achievements in their lives but I want
to exceed them. I want to be able to pay them back for
all they are doing right now for me and take care of
them in their old age.
I am a people person. I like to meet new people and
experience new things. I have a way of making people
open up and let out whatever it is that they are feeling
inside. I am hardworking and I do not quit tasks simply
because it is hard or challenging. I am a positive person.
I do not like to give off negative vibes. First impressions
last forever. I see a glass of water as being half full,
not half empty. I like to consider the positive and
negative consequences of a situation, before and after.
I learn from other peoples’ mistakes; that way
I am not a likely victim. I do worry, sometimes, about
the little things in life. According to my mother, I
can never keep my room up to her standards. Those are
some flaws of mine.
As a whole, it will always be my dream to become a
medical doctor someday. When I become a doctor, I will
be fulfilling the dreams of both my mother and me. I
know the road will be rough, but I have my family behind
me and my ambitions to keep me going.
