“What do you want to do?”
This is the question I heard the most when I was a junior and senior in high school, looking ahead toward college.
“I want to be a doctor or a writer,” I’d respond. Two very different career paths, one that I was more suited to than the other, but both dreams that I had throughout high school.
“Be a doctor. You can help people if you’re a doctor.” And this is the response I always heard.
I can help people… if I’m a doctor.
