I'm a great teacher simply because I enjoy teaching. To me, teaching is not a job; it's a passion of mine. My strong understanding of the subjects I am certified to teach is a result of hard work and determination. Not once during my entire schooling career did I take a class for the sake of enhancing my GPA---my main motive was always to learn. I think if students have this mentality they will be rewarded in the end. That's not to say that an A is not important, as grades on your transcripts do evaluate your potential. It is vital to find a balance between striving to learn and working for an A.
I began my academic journey studying economics at the University of California, Irvine. I completed my degree after three years of taking classes in accounting, economics, finance, mathematics and social science. I decided to then pursue a career in medicine so for my last two years at UCI, I completed requisites for medical school, which included classes and laboratories in biology, chemistry and physics. I graduated in March 2012 and took the MCAT the following May, scoring in the 90th percentile. I currently am applying to medical schools and researching in cardiology at UC Irvine Medical Center and assisting in clinical trial research at a medical clinic.
What ultimately keeps me going throughout the week are the joys I experience when I have free time and keeping fit is also one of my passions. In my spare time, I enjoy playing soccer, lifting weights, swimming, biking and all sorts of other activities. I believe I can be a great role model for an aspiring student because I have managed to live a balanced lifestyle while still succeeding in my studies.
