The reason why I chose kinesiology as my major was for a number of reasons that have changed so many times over my years here at SWAU. Originally I wanted to be a physical therapist, but the more I learned about the major and the different ways I could go, my goals have changed. My first goal is to graduate from Southwestern in the spring of 2017. Even though my schooling would be nowhere near done, it is a mile stone that I cannot wait to cross. After that my next goal is to complete my EMT certification, I have been working on it the past year or so and I am ready to begin my practice. Eventually after I complete my EMT I plan on working as one for the summer and eventually carrying that over into becoming a paramedic.
The reasons I am choosing these paths is because my end goal is to become an ER physician. It’s going to take me a long time but I believe that I can do it. I love people and I love medicine. On many different occasions I was able to shadow a medical professional of some sort and the way I saw the interaction between them and the patients really spoke to me and it appealed to me. I just had to find which way I believed I could most contribute to the world of medicine. I love people, getting along with others is something I’ve always had a talent for. You could put me in a room with a brick and I’ll find a way to get along with it. Just imagine what I could do with people. I know the road will tough and there will be many nights that’s I wont get sleep due to studying or internships but I know it will all be worth it. My last and final goal is to become a missionary doctor or “doctors without boarders” this means ill travel the world helping individuals with no source of income or medical care. I could be in villages deep in the rain forest or in the deepest parts of the Congo. I’m Jamaican so I have kind always had this vision I would end up there some day but who knows. My goal is to just impact the world in the deepest way that I can, not just with any skills I would acquire through the years of practice I would have had by then medically but on a spiritual level as well. I do believe that we are living in last days and even though my relationship with Christ isn’t perfect now I would hope by then it will be at place that I can reach others through my work.
