I am entering this scholarship program as a 45 year old wife and mother of two, I work a full time job as the Secretary to the Principal at a Junior High School. Although I find my work very fulfilling and interesting, I am finding myself in need of a new direction. The medical field has always interested me since my mother’s illness several years ago (pancreatic cancer). I took a leave from my job for some time to care for her and realized what an interesting field the medical profession is. Needless to say, I learned quite a bit about medicines, test, etc. As I look back to that time, I should have made a move then and I would be ahead of myself at this point.
I have researched many digital transcription programs and I believe your program would best fit my needs. I would like to be able to learn at my own pace, but of course will need guidance, which your program provides. Other programs I have looked into leave you on your own to complete tasks you know nothing about. It also appears that you offer an opportunity of employment at the end of the course, which is absolutely a positive factor. Of course money is another issue, some courses charge you an outrageous sum of money to guide yourself down a long and winding road.
If I were to win this scholarship you can be assured your money will be well spent. I am not the type of person to take this lightly. I will give 110% effort and dedication to your program. I have thought long and hard about which road to take at this point in my life, and I believe that with my knowledge and dedication I can master this with the opportunity.
One of my main reasons to try this new adventure is the advantage of working from home and choosing your own hours. My son recently started college and I would like to be able to pay for as much of his education as possible without being away from home and my husband. I believe with hard work and dedication that I could complete this course and have a career that will benefit myself and my family for many years to come. Although I realize this would be a huge commitment on my part and difficult at times, my strong will will prevail. It is my hope in the future to possibly start my own business, again, with guidance from the appropriate sources. If that is not possible, I would gladly work for someone else and let them worry about the logistics.
In reviewing this essay please keep in mind my 15 years of employment with the school department and my eagerness and willingness to start something brand new at this point in my life. I feel as though this field would best fit my needs and interests, while providing a much needed service to many doctors. Thank you for the opportunity to be reviewed for your scholarship.
