What I'm Looking For




Bodies
My ultimate career goal is to be a successful medical doctor. Since I was young, the profession called out to me in so many ways. On one hand I'm thoroughly amazed by the complexity of the human body; on the other, having the means to help people is certainly a rewarding aspect that makes medicine all the more appealing.

Medical
Right now I am actively searching for a job, internship, or volunteering opportunity in the medical field so I can get exposure and experience to the healthcare setting.


Research
As a biochemist by training, I am also interested in opportunities either to do research or to utilize the knowledge and experience I already possess in an endeavor in the areas of Biology, Chemistry, or Pharmaceutics.

Children
Finally, let's not forget that I love working with kids! I've wanted to be a pediatrician ever since I can remember. Caring for, teaching, and mentoring children and teens are among the things I enjoy doing and at which I excel.
