Being a surgeon is my life long goal its all I ever wanted to be. I want to start helping out in hospitals as soon as I can to help give others assistance and a smile to make there day better. Its important to me to make a positive enviorment as much as I can, no matter how bad someone is feeling it's always good to make them smile and brighten up there day.

I want to show evryone that im very lovable and very caring to anyone. I want to make a difference and change and save many life. So i can be proud what i done to help other people and that make me happy just helping peoples.
My children and I made blankets over the summer to donate. It was easy to follow the directions they gave for making them, and the other items, and simple to give them to the Hospital. It was nice to have an opportunity for younger children to get involved and work as a family.
