Both of my parents work in a hospital so I think that I could learn a lot from them. I have a good work ethic and I know I will try my hardest in school and will complete all of my years to become a doctor.

I could search things online about surgery and I could ask my parents what they think about their jobs and other ways I could prepare. One last thing is that I can take classes in school related to healthcare so that I can have an advantage later in the future.
