"I enjoy helping people. Pursuing a profession in the clinical laboratory science field allowed me to incorporate my love of the sciences with my passion for helping people." "I liked that 体育菠菜大平台 was big enough to meet someone new each day, but small enough that I also was able to get to know my professors and classmates."
