Upon entering the realm of medical professions and competitive organization I was welcomed by an array of friendly personalities. Even though I have only spent a few months in the company of HOSA my eyes have been brought to the attention of endless possibilities. Before my arrival it was always a one track destination; “I want to be doctor, surgeon, coroner, medical examiner.” Now I can’t help but ponder the vast variety of alternative future professions.
Going deeper into the organization, when I began the transportation of water bottles, becoming connected with HOSA became a regular routine. Besides being related to the rest of the freshman population or stereotypically written off as an another teenager, I became part of a whole. We are easily recognizable, clad in black scrubs, hair pulled back, and prepared for anything. Guided and exposed to new options, I am no longer a lone person yet instead a strong member of HOSA.
Although, I admit I have not gone to events such as CERT there are still a multitude of opportunities to pursue a relationship with surrounding members. With the Fall Leadership Rally arriving soon in December my blood is pumped and excited for the morale boosted event. What makes HOSA so appealing is the common interest among our members to further ourselves and become more involved as future healthcare professionals. Fueled by our goals, we are held by an intellectual commute rather than a social status. Members of HOSA whether they be new or experienced our drive is what shows in the end. Hoping my words may have brightened your day, this is HOSA article writer Megan Piňa, sending encouraging words.
