Hello! My name is Kimberly Julissa López and I am 22 years old. I live in a town named San Antonio Aguas Calientes from the department of Sacatepéquez where I have lived all my life. This community inspires not only cultural but peaceful values, in which I was able to feel and see first-hand the traditions and cultures that characterize my region.
My parents are known for being fair and honest people. They are hardworking craftsmen, who have always taught me to never give up. They have taught me and my brothers to be perseverant and to work with effort to reach our goals. These values have helped me to be think critically and grow as a good person. I am willing to continuously learn in life and am always focusing on ways to help others.
Currently, I am a nursing student. I have the desire to continue learning and get deeper into the study of nursing so that I can train myself not only academically but also professionally. Someday I would like to get a Ph.D. degree focused on health. Medicine is an important profession because you never stop learning new information and it’s amazing to see how our body and mind works. Finally, what led me to study medicine is the feeling of assisting the needy and providing them an adequate service to their needs.
My future plans would be to graduate as a nurse or even a physician’s assistant. I want to promote health education in my community, I want to travel to different countries so I can continue my studies in the field of medicine and I want to provide better service to my community.
In addition, I also want to create a clinic with different health professionals and specialties in order to cover the medical needs in my community. I want to be able to provide employment and at the same time promote hygiene habits to the people so they can lead a dignified life.
