I want to be an OBGYN

Kaysn | future OBGYN

I'm Kaysn. I grew up with two households.

My grades were not very good and I didn't participate in a lot of activities. I didn't think about what my future would be like. It wasn't until my father asked me what I wanted my career to be. I struggled with that question. After I thought long and hard, I decided that I wanted to be a doctor.

I just didn't know what type of doctor. The older I became, the closer my decision came to what type of doctor I wanted to be. I just recently decided that I wanted to be an OBGYN (Obstetrician and Gynecologist). I wanted to help women that were in the process of having a baby. I felt that I wanted to make their pregnancy as healthy and positive as possible. I asked my father what I could do that would help me achieve my goal.

He told me that community service, joining clubs, and making good grades would help a lot. I was also playing sports for the city. The softball team that I played for won third place in the state of Texas and soon became a traveling team. When it became an official travel team, I tried out and made it. The soccer team that I was also currently playing at the time won first place in the city championships.

I continued to play softball and I went to strength and conditioning camp. My grades improved a lot. I participated in cross country and track.

I had such good grades, I was given an invitation to sign-up for the NJHS (National Junior Honor Society). I was accepted. This year, I'm putting my focus on my grades so that I can get into college. I put every class that I could take that had to do with my career on my schedule. I do everything I can to make myself successful. I want to get the best of everything out of life.

I want my career to be where I help women that are in need. I feel that if I can help them in the best way I can, I'm helping them to have best they can during their pregnancy. I want to know that I helped women that were in need of help.
