      "I am extremely interested in emergency medicine as well as dermatology. I am currently volunteering at Mercy Hospital in the emergency room department, and I love that it is fast-paced. I am always assisting and addressing patient needs; I fill up pediatric IV start kits, fill lab tube trays, restock blankets, and make urine specimen kits. I also am interested in dermatology because my sister had severe eczema. I want to help others with skin issues they may be insecure about."

      Rachelle's Answer

      You have excellent reasoning behind your desire to focus on either one of these areas of health care. Nicely said.
