Although I’m only a mere 13 years old, I know what I want to be when I grow up. I enjoy working in a calm, collective environment, but still ready to handle an emergency. I love to have the ability to help people. I also love the topic of Anatomy, which is the study of the structure and working of the internal organs. Currently, I’m getting A’s and B’s which accounts for my 3.5 GPA in the eighth grade. I will hopefully increase my grades to all A’s and improve my study habits in high school because I want to attend EHOVE, and then college. When I grow up, I want to be a Surgical Assistant.
When I grow up I want to be a Surgical Assistant. In order to be a Surgical Assistant I must know what traits that can help me receive scholarships are required. “Activities that include data, detail, and regular routines. They do well at jobs that need: Self Control, Attention to Detail, Dependability, Integrity, Stress, Tolerance and Concern for Others.” I will strive at this because I have those traits and pay attention to data and detail. “The student must achieve a minimum GPA of 2.5 and a grade of “C” in all courses required for the program.” I have always held a Grade Point Average of 2.5 or higher and usually get all A’s and B’s, and it will be easy if I practice better study habits and work hard.
I believe that I have the skills to be a great Surgical Assistant because of my interest in the credentials needed for this degree and job of the Health Science Courses I have Attended . “General Overview of Courses Include: General Biology, Microbiology, Anatomy & Physiology’ Several of the needed classes and topics that I have had the chance to try I love, like Health Science and Anatomy.” I would love the chance to try the other topics like Biology and Microbiology that’s why I will go to all the Health Science Classes that I can.
I have the skills that are said to be needed for a Surgical Assistant. “Surgical Assistant skills: Nerves of steel, A strong stomach, Attention to detail, Thick skin, Adaptability.” I have several of these traits like a strong stomach meaning I can see blood and not get squeamish, Attention to detail, thick skin meaning that I won’t get discouraged if someone says that I can’t or that I don’t do well enough for this job, adaptability meaning I can go from department to department for different types of surgery, and nerves of steel meaning I can stand still for many hours doing surgery or assist an high risk surgery.
To become a surgical assistant I will need at the very least six years of college. “Ohio’s new College Credit Plus can help me earn college and high school credits at the same time by taking college courses from community colleges or universities.” I plan on going to Ehove during high school. If I go to EHOVE, I can be done with 1 or 2 years of college for practically nothing, that’s why I believe Ehove is the smartest route to take with my education.
