My name is Jahlissa Jackson and I’m a Sophomore at Umass Boston. I have a brother who is in the 11th grade and my parents have been divorced for 8years. I’m very outgoing and love to help others who are in need. I have done a lot of volunteering in my community with different summer schools and daycares and enjoyed every moment of it. Ever since I was a little girl I have always wanted to go into the medical field. I was in the hospital for two months during the first grade because I had Guillain Barre Syndrome; a serious disorder that occurs when the body's immune system mistakenly attacks part of the nervous system. While I was in the hospital I saw how the doctors and nurses were helping the children out with what they need. Now that I’m getting older I have realized what I want to specifically major in when I attend college. I want to start off as a Registered Nurse and make my way up to a Pediatrician witch is my dream career. I know I will have to work extra hard to achieve my dream but I’m ready to take on the challenge set forth. Some of my objectives in life would be to become a nurse and give back to the community. I would like to have enough money to help provide for my family and give some money to different charities for younger children.
