My desire to become a Physician Assistant can be traced back to a childhood experience I had with my mother. At the age of 12, my mother experienced excruciating pain from a fibroid in her womb. On admission to the hospital, she was treated by a team of health professionals, and over the course of a month, the fibroid was detached, and I watched her get better due to the work done by the team of health professionals. The ability for people to work together and put a sick person back to a perfect state was very heroic I then realized how good and fulfilling it was to care for the needs of others, which made me want to pursue a career that cares for the needs of people.
My interest in the health profession propelled my decision to move to The United States in search of a good school and also prepare me for a professional program. My research on various schools led me to Texas Southern University as I was easily convinced by its culture and history. In my time as an undergrad at Texas Southern I learned two important skills which are the ability to make critical decisions on my own and the ability to place the needs of others above mine in service to the community. In a bid to find the right health profession, I decided to get a Job at Walgreens as a pharmacy Technician trainee. There, I experienced first-hand, the devotion and selflessness of a Pharmacist, it was in fact motivating. However, I realized few weeks in that although I could see the Pharmacist give his all to his work, I would not be able to do same because my interest began to depreciate. The sense of satisfaction I was seeking was in something else. As I continued to work there, I commenced to examine within myself and search what could bring me contentment and also create a strong and valued human relationship with patients. This prompted me to look for other health professions that would enable me to acquire the kind of fulfilment I sought for making an impact in people’s lives.
Becoming a Physician Assistant is not just to justify my own desire but also to impact the lives of others as well as my community. My independency as a young adult and pursing a degree in the last 4 years, I have developed patience, perseverance and dedication. My crossing so far has equipped me a resilient foundation in people skills and knowledge and last but not least making me a better candidate for Physician Assistance school.
