Elliot Roth 1182011 Honors Seminar Outline ntroMy name is Elliot Roth and am a biomedical engineering and chemical and life sciences engineering major at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond Virginia I hope to minor in math All this education will go towards my goal of becoming a doctor and figuring out a way to put myself out of business as one The reason for this goal is twofold firstly the object of any profession is to do the job so well that you won t have to perform it again and secondly wish to change the world in some wayMany mentors and past experiences have influenced me in reaching this decision and I hope to outline them in this writing Education has been an integral part of my life so far since my elementary school growth in curiosity to the persistence in studying science now My dad s work as an engineer and my mom s guidance and the support they ve given me has been a large part in my motivation towards being successful further on in lifen middle to high school I really began to understand who I am as a person The influence of my friends and role models that I ve adapted qualities of have shaped my personality and led to many of my odd quirks I know that life may not always lead in the direction you plan so I m interested in so many things as contingency plans so that I know that wherever am and with whatever I m doing will be happy in some capacity The personal philosophy that I have enables me to interact with many others in such positive ways and always see the glass halffull was involved in so many activities in high school it is amazing to see the extent of possibility in college and the vast amount of things to do and be involved in I want to do my best to fulfill all expectations asked of me as well as working to become a
