When you ask a fifth grader what you want to be when they grow up, you often get answers like “a firefighter, or a singer in a band or a teacher.” She was that weird kid who said, “a medical researcher.”
She graduated from Yate University this year.
She is excited to work with patients, save lives, providing diagnoses and treatments.
Yes, she started early, joining organizations in school and out, gaining the skills to succeed.
When the student is ready the teacher will appear!
