My interest of helping others drew me into the health care field. My future goal is to be a Physician assistant and since that is in the distant future, I decided to get a career that will immediately help me fulfill the desire of helping others whiles I work on my imminent goal. Hence I choose to be a CNA. Being a CNA, I have worked with several agencies and a hospital (Massachusetts General Hospital-Boston).
