Opinions

I defiantly could see myself pursuing this career because I would have fun giving children checkups and seeing happy faces. But I also couldent see myself pursuing this career because I do not like puke or any thing sick. Also I don't like getting sick. If I end up in this career I would defiantly need financial aid , a loan, or a scholarship because there is no way that I can make 52,500 dollars in a few years.
