This internship solidified that I want to help those that are of lower social economic status. I saw how people were able to receive help because it was free and how people were unwilling to receive treatment because of financial issues. I believe that everyone deserves the chance to live and better their health. After this internship I want to become someone to help ones that are less fortunate abroad. It is much easier to give free health abroad.
After working at the Cancer Institute I realized that I like doing psycho social activities with them. Immediately I might not be able to alleviate their pain or provide direct treatment but I can get their mind off of the pain. I like interacting with patients and learning about their life story. I think everyone’s life is an interesting story even if they think it is the most normal one. To them it may be normal but I am fascinated by each and every one of them.
