Growing up in Minnesota has lead to a wide variety of experiences; for example, I spent the greater amount of my childhood living on a sheep farm of all places. I like to say that this upbringing is what influenced me to pursue the field of medicine. While I spent a lot of time with my friends, I spent more time in the barn tending to the animals that lived with me. Bottle-feeding orphaned kittens, giving medicine to an ill llama, and assisting ewes with birth were qualifications that I achieved before the age of 10. Living on a farm allowed me to understand the influence of caring for others. Fast forward 20 some years, and I am currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in health sciences with a minor in public health in hopes of one day becoming a neonatologist. This is a large, complicated goal filled with joys and an equal amount of complications. During the course of this blog, I hope to illustrate this strenuous journey, more so that I can one day look back upon the hard work and determination that was needed to achieve said goal. I hope you enjoy!
