About Charissa

The most important morality to posses is empathy, sympathy, kindness, compassion, love, and companionship; everything else will grow and bounce off these traits. My love for helping people and being around patients has brought me to the careers that I desire to have. When I graduate college I plan on being an International Humanitarian Surgeon; a doctor that travel to third world and/or underdeveloped countries that do not have the means of medically supporting each other, and have a higher death rate than birth rate. Since I was little I have desired to be the doctor on the front lines in the wars saving people who have been injured, the doctor that jumps in natural disasters (hurricanes, tsunamis, etc...) pulling people out of danger and caring for wounds, and/or the person who joins activism protests saving people in situations of bombings. Helping people and saving lives is my greatest passion in life, and until I become a surgeon, I will be a caregiver. The greatest achievements I have so far are traveling to Peru to work at a medical center in the underdeveloped/ starving village of Huancayo, and traveling to Costa Rica to work at an orphanage. I am willing to negotiate wage
