Before I decided to attend Lone Star College, I was a 2nd year dental student in Pakistan. Since childhood, I wanted to become a dentist because it is one of the most demanding professions at the present and in future. Being a dentist has always fascinated me because I myself have been through that experience. As a dentist, I can help remove the pain of my patients, maintain their oral hygiene and most importantly, give them confidence in their smiles.
I decided to attend Lone Star College because my family moved from Pakistan to Houston and because I needed to complete my bachelors in order to apply to a dental school in the U.S. I felt that Lone Star would be a good transition point for my transfer to a four-year university. Lone Star has given me opportunities that I believe will lead me to my goals. As a Lone Star student I have the opportunity to participate in various clubs that can make me a stronger applicant for dental school.
While at Lone Star College, I plan to use the Health and Fitness center to improve my stamina. The Health and Fitness Center includes a basketball court, volleyball court, games, aerobics and dance. It is the best place one could go to get relaxed, shape up and workout. What fascinates me about the center is the basketball court because I love playing basketball and the court out here is amazing. It is red in color, lovely basketball nets, posters around the court and a large screen for the spectators. It is just like a professional basketball court.
After I graduate from Lone Star College, I plan to transfer to the University of Houston to complete my bachelors degree and apply to dental school. If I choose to go into dentistry, I would like to specialize in forensic dentistry. I have also considered joining the U.S. Army as an officer, after completing my bachelors, and continuing with it. I am passionate about both of these things and will definitely be looking into them. I know that no matter which way I go in...
