When finishing high school and going into college you have to decide on what profession you would like to major on. Many people are interested in studying to become doctors; there are many types of doctors. You may want to become a podiatrist, which specializes on people feet. Or you might want to be a pediatrician, specializing in the general health of children. A type of doctor I find interesting is a dermatologist. A dermatologist is a doctor which deals with anything that has to do with the skin; I am interested in becoming a dermatologist to assist people with skin problems.
In your teen years you can go through many problems. One problem I had to go through was having bad acne. During the time I had acne I turned depressed, I gained a lot of weight, and I stopped leaving my house. It made me feel horrendous and I hated my face. Finally after many months of stalling I finally made my mom take me to a dermatologist. I was so nervous to go see a doctor about my face, but I know that was the only way I was going to get my life back.
Going into the dermatologist’s office I didn’t know what I was going to expect. He came in and talk to me for a couple of minutes and left. We had only been there for a small amount of time and we were charged for that. That moment is when I realized I wanted to become a dermatologist. It’s amazing how a person can get paid for hardly doing anything. I know that going into a medical field will take a lot of school and studying. It is also going to be hard and stressful, but in the end it will all pay off.
Another reason for my desire to become a dermatologist is because I would like to help the teens and adults that are going through what I went through. Having a skin problem like acne can make people very self-conscious. I want to be able to help patients feel confident and beautiful in their skin. So many people have skin problems and if I become a dermatologist not only will I be helping with people with acne problems, but I can also help with other skin problems.
Having the ability to make a change in someone’s life is such a wonderful feeling. Becoming a dermatologist I would be making a change everyday in so many people’s life. I am so grateful for the dermatologist that helped me clear my skin; it really changed my life. I cant imaging how my life would be if I wouldn’t have gotten help from a dermatologist. In the future I hope to inspire people like my dermatologist inspired me.
