The most significant person in my life is my Dentist. For the last year I have been volunteering at his office. Such an opportunity had led to realize my goal of becoming a Medical Doctor. Dr. Hoffman has been so impactful because he had gone out of his way to help me develop real life skills. I have learned not only the business end of running a successful medical establishment but also the interpersonal aspects. What is a business without its customers? What is a Doctor with his patients? Being able to see this and many other connection has transformed me into a much more professional and thoughtful person. It has also pushed me along a path I will never shy away from, one that will lead me not only into college but beyond into my career as a Medical Doctor. A Doctor who embodies the same careful, supportive, and empowering characteristics that I associate with my mentor Dr. Hoffman.
