There are two most paramount days in the life of a human being. These are the day you have been born and the day you will have a reason why you have been born. This is Mark Twain's quote. It crossed my mind severally when I was describing why I am inspired to be a Physician Assistant. It is hard for a person to find the reason why he/she has been born on this earth. This is accompanied by lots of life challenges until someone gets successful, loses hope or even gives up. For an individual to have a genuine interest in what he/she pursues, self-reflection, unyielding determination, and faith are the vital necessities. At the beginning of my academic year, I had limited commitment in the learning process of being a physician assistant. Honestly, I lacked the above motivating factors that a person needs to succeed in life.
I knew I needed a career to be a physician assistant but when my friends asked me why, I felt vigor in my heart, determined, honest, confident grit, and passion while answering the asked questions. This ambition did not come into reality until I was involved in a tragic accident. I still recall this bright morning vividly when we prepared to make a visit with my friends to the national park. It was on a holiday and, therefore, we had to tour to the national park and later have fun at a nearby resort. The day was so bright, calm, and sunny until evening changed everything.
As the sun set, the rain commenced falling. As we were on the way home, alongside the road there were flashing lights in a nearby black vehicle and the sirens. It was entirely distracting. I just found myself unconscious, stuck inside the car. I was aided by the EMS and they took me to the nearby health facility. It was not until the next day that I just woke up and attempted to uplift my head out of bed. I felt lots of pain that made me scream, and the screeching sound echoed all around the room. Mom, my dear mother, ran into the chamber: “Shyleen, stop from lifting your head, you will increase the pain”, she said with a heartfelt tone. Not only that, she said the words but also beads of sweats and tears rolled down her lovely cheeks. My face displayed nothing than innocence. “What happened mom and why is my leg engulf with a white cloth?” As I innocently waited for my mom to answer me, my friend's mother came towards us and uttered. As she spotted the eye on my bleeding and a broken leg, “My daughter is no more, and she is gone”. She said as she sprawled down and she cried painfully. I was damn shocked. My friend Mercy was gone? I couldn't believe this. There and then I felt like running to confirm if it was true though I was in pain. Immediately doctor with the medicine arrived asking where people involved in an accident were, it was late.
My dear friend had passed on due to the lateness of the physician on duty. This was the day I felt I had to be a doctor. After my recovery, I followed visited health facility to thank the doctor for saving my life though my friends passed on. Suffering from various complications of injuries that I underwent was a hindrance but the health cares at that very time and the years to come indebted me more to comprehend the significance of knowledgeable and skilled physician assistants.
If I become PA, I will take a prescription of pro service for the patient in a detailed way without complaint and will help save a life. I am going to help patients with and in return, the feeling is a sentiment that is incredible. Moreover, I remember those childhood memories when I could use herbs juice to cure the wound. My grandmother used to use herbal medicines too and taught me varieties of herbal secrets. I pray God to give me strength and wisdom as I would like to serve humanity by treating ailments and human conditions. This was the time I told my parents to enroll me in a nearby medical school and so, I have passion to pursue the career.
