I get asked this a lot.
"What do you want to do with your life?"
"Where do you want to go for college?"
"What's your future plans"
I get very cautious about sharing my future plans because I like to dream big but at the same time I keep my mind open to other doors and opportunities. I change my ideas every other day, I go back and fourth, and my plans might change next week. But with that, I want others to know that it's never too early to think about your future. Keep an mind open, step out of your comfort zone, and don't be afraid to dream big.
Here's my plan. As of now at least.
College and Med School:
I've been looking at going to University of Washington for college. I'm open to universities out of state if they're really good and if they give me good finacial aid but I've always wanted to live in Seattle since I was little. If I got the oppurnity to stay in Univerisity Of Washington to attend medical school then that's be a dream come true. I'd love to stay in Seattle.
I've been really intrested in becoming an Emergency Pediatrican. So I'll be doing a 3 year residency in pedatrics followed by an additonal 3 year fellowship for emergency medicine in pedatrics. I do want to keep an open mind until I actually have to choose. Once I start getting more experience and insights to different specalties, I might change my mind.
I would love to stay in Seattle until I'm done with my fellowship. It's much closer to home and I just love the weather. Once I'm finacially stable and ready to move, I wouldn't mind moving to a more populated city like Los Angeles or San Francisco. I don't like the heat too much so we'll see how I feel. I do plan on traveling around the world, I love learning about new cultures and lifestyles.
Of course I want to have a family. Probably 3 kids, I'd want boys first and then one girl to spoil. When I'll start a family is still in question. Definetly before residency. Most likely during medical school and honestly I wouldn't mind if one of them pops out when I'm 21. With that I'd want at least one dog.
A plan for life can't be set in stone.
I understand that there'll be changes in my life that might make it so I can't do what I want when I want to; but I also know that as long as I'm happy, it's gonna be alright.
