Applicants were required to submit an essay on “Why I Chose Medical Assisting as My Career.” Below are some highlights from Rain’s essay.
“I knew that I wanted to enter a profession that would enable me to help people, challenge myself, and grow. Growing up was not easy for me & I did not appreciate my education as a high school student. I eventually received my diploma after graduating from night school but was still unsure of what to do next. I worked for five years in the food service industry trying to support myself while working endless hours with little to no time off.”
“In June 2021 tragedy struck with the passing of my uncle. His sudden death from an unexpected heart attack at the age of forty one left all of us devastated. I realized how our time on earth is so precious and we need to make the most of it. I decided to enroll at Southeastern Technical Institute. I had not been a student for four years and I was very nervous about going back to school – a place that was never my comfort zone.
“Enrolling in the Medical Assisting Program at Southeastern Technical Institute has been one of the best decisions that I have ever made for myself. Since starting school this past September my confidence has skyrocketed and I am currently among one of the top students in my class. I will be sitting for AAMA Exam in June 2022 and I am looking forward to becoming a Certified Medical Assistant. I know that I will make a difference in the life of others.”
