My name is Lara Andriza D. Penales, an incoming second year medical student. This coming school year, we are required to have some medical supplies that we will be needing when we go to clinics. These medical supplies are expensive and I cannot afford to buy them all. On top of this, I also need to pay for my enrollment fee, book reprints, and dorm fee. My mother singlehandedly supports me financially and I really, really want to help her.
Most of the time, I really feel guilty as to why I decided to pursue this very expensive profession, but my mother keeps reminding me that a lot of people need me.
Thank you so much for your support and I promise to pay it forward!
