The education I received at Jaffery Academy has shaped who I am today by providing not only the acquisition of knowledge but the thirst for more. In my younger years, those who imparted knowledge because I valued it became role models. The way they conducted themselves taught me how to behave. Their patience through my questions, their guidance through my failures, and their assistance in my successes taught me patience, taught me how to encourage, and taught me how to inspire. My desire to assist, guide, and heal others comes directly from those who taught me. My story, while still not finished, is the creation of a character my early education teachers helped inspire and I hope to continue to live a life of service to humanity one patient at a time.
