Emily loves her 8th grade science class at Daylight. She smiles wide “I like to learn about the chambers and the blood types and the veins.” Her fascination in the human body has led her to want to be a surgeon.
She is eager to graduate college so she can work at a hospital and send money home to her family. “My mother lives in the desert where life is very hard. She is happy I went to school because I am her only child going to school.” Emily has a lot of pressure on her to succeed, but she feels up to the challenge. “I want to be a surgeon in town and send money home to my mom and brothers and sisters. But if there are people who have no money for surgeries. I will help anyways.”
