Participating in HOSA was the catalyst for me to confidently enter the medical field. Collaboration and connection with current healthcare workers gave me the vision and drive to work towards presenting the same level of professionalism I saw modeled as a current student and future member of the job force. It instilled in me the critical thinking skills necessary to preform skillfully in a real-life atmosphere.
