I consider my self just as ayoung vibrant soul eager to meet life’sn challenges, I am willing to work hardto acquire certain goals that I define as important in life.
As a firstgeneration Canadian the responsibilities are a bit demanding but underneath wesaw a rising future. The biggest motivation that I have ever gotten is from myparents, they are willing to take any risks, they taught me to become a truehuman being, since the first day of my life. Most of my childhood was in India,the land of diversity. My childhood was not any different from any middle-classfamilies. But I have seen children at that age undergoing very different anddifficult situations to support their families. These sacrifices made me think,I wanted to contribute for my community, that was when my parents told me thatwe are moving to Canada.
My plans were falling, I thought, I would not be ableto make a role.The winter hailed us, the feelingof home was missing, though it was hard for the first few months, the communityhere had already made us a part and welcomed us. This attitude made me realizethat my dreams had a second chance, I chose to volunteer of every event andshow my gratitude. I believe that what you put is given out and carried out, beinghuman I trust, is not being only a body with organs. It’s also about being functionalof others agony, problems.
Being conscious for me is knowing what is happeningin the world, is caring about what’s going on, being aware is knowing andwanting to help. The most important part of being human for me is not being impassive.Not being judgmental to others, indifferent to the environment, and not beingunconcerned to the problems we face today. Becoming humanitarian is anessential human trait, it defines who you are. I chose to be a humanitarianbecause I understand that all human situations that we share is regardless ofrace, ethnicity, religion, and social status is the same.
It’s working towardscommon human goal and ensuring we support people with respect and dignity. Thisidea means helping people who are suffering and saving lives any time any placein the world. So humanitarian work requires being responsible, conscious of thecircumstances of other people’s lives, and helping them based on need, withoutdiscrimination. These thoughts have had reflected my aspirations of becoming adoctor.
I think this job echoes my values and what I believe in.
