Medical Assistant

Graduate - October 2013

Resides in New York

My experience here at the Allen School has been a unique one. I, honestly, was always interested in the healthcare setting, but it is normal to feel nervous in this field as well. I was so nervous when it came to the hands-on assignments because I came to this school with the mentality that there was no room for mistakes. Every day I push myself because I know what I am capable of and with the help of the phenomenal staff here at the Allen School, I grow each day and I continue to grow. I’ve met people that will leave footprints on my heart.

My classmates started off as strangers and are now considered family. We all vowed to take this journey together and as the months went on we all became each other shoulders to lean on. We all had stories, and all the stories made me realize why am I really here at the Allen School and that is to live the life I desire and deserve. I never thought I would make it this far the day I decided to look into the Allen School and when I received my tour I was still unsure as to what I really wanted to do but Ms. Denise insisted she knew I really wanted it, and I did. I just want to say thank you to The Allen School for everything and thank you to my support system. My main focus is to make everyone proud!
