Gabriela's Story

My passion is biology.

My passion for biology was discovered as I grew older and developed a sense of maturity. My first job was a babysitter and there, I realized I liked operating around and with kids. As a young adult, I began to view the world in a different perspective. Part of this passion developed as I felt the rewarding feeling that came from taking care of these kids. A major push factor is my community, especially those coming from foreign countries, lacking health care. Most importantly I feel it is necessary that these kids be offered the opportunity to a healthy lifestyle.

Camp SEA Keepers of the Coast would be an enormous advancement in my future. Attending this program would not only be a great honor, but great opportunity as well. My biggest impulse for applying to this program is the exposure to hands-on experiences. A new experience like this would finalize my decision to becoming a pediatrician. It would bring security and comprehension to who I want to become. From the exposure, I would not only be shaped to become a colleague to other students but become familiar with the rigorous courses of a college student. In participating alongside a professional, I believe this will not only motivate me but allow me to envision myself achieving later accomplishments. I place confidence that this program will prepare me for the difficult courses, the away from home experience, and shape my knowledge to fit the adequate amount necessary to be equivalent to that of a future prosperous college student.

A Note from Mr. Morgan, Gabriela's Teacher

Gabby wants to be part of the medical community because of her interest in the area, but also because she genuinely wants to engage in work where she is able to give back to her community. Gabby is a giver by nature. I've seen this time and time again at school. She helps others, not just because it's the right thing to do, but because she genuinely takes pleasure in it. Gabby puts others at their ease. She brings out the best in even the most cynical students in the class. Camp SEA Keepers of the Coast would really help provide Gabby with a focused path, through which she can achieve her goals and give back even more to her community.
