Clean and Clear
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...
