As a sophomore in high school, I know that I have a world of opportunities in front of me. Going on this trip will introduce me to medicine and give me an experience that will impact me as a student, as a person, and as a future biomedical engineer or physician (I'm still undecided). I think going on this trip will allow me to learn more about medicine and culture and it will be an eye opening experience. Not only that, but Nicaragua is the second poorest country in Latin America. I have been blessed with the opportunity to live in America and get an education that the children in Nicaragua will never get to have. This trip will allow me to give back to the world that has given me so much. To me, success is a peace of mind that is the direct result of knowing in your heart that you did the best you could and are the best person that you can be. I know that this trip would teach me so much and it would be a significant part of my journey towards success.
