Helping others has always been a passion of mine. When the people I love are happy, I am happy. There is nothing like putting a smile on someone's face. However, there are times when there is nothing one can say or do to change an unfortunate situation, but be comforting and supporting. Majoring in health science, to then enter a Master's program to become a physician assistant, would give me the opportunity to help, not only those around me, but other people, as well. I would eventually love to work with cancer-patient children because regardless of their situation, they always have this joy about them, not even an illness could take away. I am not a mother but when I see those commercials of children with cancer, something inside of me moves; I want to be a part of helping those children, even if it were to simply put a smile on their faces. USC is a great and notably known school, which I know can give me the education I need to achieve my academic and professional dreams. No one in my immediate family has gone to an undergraduate school. Graduating, alone, would be amazing; graduating from USC would surpass all expectations. The most rewarding part of it all is that my oldest brother, who I lost in 2012, would be extremely proud of me; there is nothing that could take that feeling away. I want to finish school, not only for myself, but for my brother, as well.
