Blog Challenge #1 Cheyeanne Perez

The career that somehow involves science that I wish to peruse would be to become a cardiothoracic surgeon. I have wanted to become a heart surgeon ever since I was younger. My brother was diagnosed with a heart murmur, and I had no clue what it was, so I was interested in it. I began to go to all of his appointments to make sure he was alright, then I started to want to become a heart doctor just like his and to I wanted to help people just like they helped him. After I decided I wanted to be a heart doctor I started reading about the anatomy of the human body and how it all works, as I was reading a page about the circulatory system my biology teacher told me that a teacher takes several students to see an open heart surgery, and I want and signed up as fast as I could. Then during the surgery I realized that I wanted to be that person that preforms the surgery, I wanted to be the person that helped the patients stay alive and keep living afterwards.
