The interest I have in the medical field and in the Academy was sparked by a tragic personal event; the death of my neighbor who was a cancer patient. Ever since then I've wanted to help those in need via medicine. The Medical Academy is the perfect starting point for that goal, because it combines textbook knowledge with hands-on experience. I believe that an academy better prepares a student in an area they are particularly passionate about in addition to the regular and general information they receive in a traditional class. In my opinion, academies better prepare students for the future. Students will feel more comfortable going to college classes relating to a particular career field and will adjust and adapt easier. This will be due to the plethora of knowledge they gain in a high school academy.

Ever since joining the Medical Academy at Lake Region High School, I have been excited about waking up every morning to go to school. My attendance has increased and being in an academy has made me want to push myself in all my other classes! Being interested in the medical field means that I need top-notch grades all around.

I hope to learn as much as possible in my academy. I plan to take Latin language classes online to prepare me for college and eventually Pharmacy school. My major career goals include getting a Doctorate degree in pharmacy and working in the clinical sector.
