Hi! I’m Jessica, an inspiring medical student. I have always loved helping people and being able to change a life. From the little things, like getting some water, to the big things, like performing CPR, healthcare has surrounded my life. I hope to get a job at the hospital this summer and continue my medical education. I am a junior in high school and am already able to get a job in the healthcare settings because of the amazing opportunities Aims and AHEC have offered me. After high school, I plan to continue my medical education to reach my life goal of working in the NICU. I mean who wouldn’t want to work with cute babies all day.

My goal for my future career path is learn to work in a emergency setting where I would be working in a fast paced precise environment and later on down the road settle down in helping children. - Kayline
