"I just graduated from UT with a Master's in Physician Assistant Studies. It took four years of undergraduate work, two and a half years in a post-baccalaureate biology program, and two years at UT, but I'm done. I'm taking my boards on Friday. The next step will be working as a Physician Assistant in a Family Practice setting. This is not all about my accomplishments though. What I've been able to do is the result of the efforts of my family and the friends I consider family. They were there for me before I even existed, and I'm grateful for them. I'm optimistic and excited about the future, especially about giving back to the community. I have a duty to perform for the people who helped me along the way."
