In 2018 I plan on travelling to the Caribbean for a medical placement. Medicine is a very competitive course so getting into medical school can be very different however this placement will make it much easier for me to get in. When I was 14 I was diagnosed with clinical depression, this had a big impact on my everyday life but thanks to treatment I have been able to live a normal life. I want to help people who have experienced similar problems and medical school will bring me closer to that. After medical school I will be able to become a psychiatrist and potentially change lives.
