ExploreHealthCareers.org is a free, peer-reviewed website designed to educate students and advisors about health careers. ExploreHealthCareers.org’s mission is to help solve two urgent problems in U.S. health care: the under-representation of minorities in the workforce and the shortage of health professionals in medically underserved communities. ExploreHealthCareers.org hopes to help build a stronger health care workforce by providing easy access to updated, peer-reviewed career descriptions that inspire and motivate students to find health careers that suit them. Their vision is to see the health professionals of tomorrow be highly skilled and motivated, and as diverse as the patients they serve. Considering that, health care is a vast field that offers a range of diverse opportunities, it is important that all student research before deciding on a position to make sure you choose one that’s a good fit for them. People can start with the Career Explorer in their website, as it collects details about all different types of health care positions to allow you to compare and contrast those that interest you. Furthermore, the best health care practitioners are committed to giving their patients the best care possible. These health care practitioners prioritize keeping up with the latest developments in the field, continuing to study and learn long after their initial schooling ends. If you have a similar interest in lifelong learning, it’s a good idea to consider entering the health care field. Finally, Health care is increasingly focusing on team work as patients’ recovery depends more and more on how well each member of the team performs his or her specific function and how well they communicate and collaborate with one another. Even dentists — 70% of whom work in a solo private practice — usually supervise and work closely with several staff members. When choosing a health care position, you’ll want to consider the amount of teamwork it requires to ensure it’s a good fit for you and your working style.

Paramedics for Children International (PFCI) provides medical care, education programs, and disaster relief to children, families, and communities in Central America and beyond. We serve without regard to religious beliefs, gender, race, or ethnic background. We started out in 1996 by delivering school supplies to hundreds of Mayan Chortí Indian children in the mountain villages of Copán, Honduras. From there, we expanded to disaster response and training (by 2004 we had the largest all-volunteer ambulance services in all of Central America!), and established Clinica la Esperanza, which treats up to 12,000 patients per year. What started as a small group of paramedics, nurses, doctors, and other healthcare professionals has evolved into so much more. We now host volunteers from all walks of life, and we have a lot of fun while making a difference in our communities. VOLUNTEER WITH US Individuals, couples, groups and families: no matter what you’re looking for, we have a volunteer opportunity waiting for you. The people we serve are largely the indigenous Chortí Maya, descendants of the great Maya city-state of Copán. Many of the families we work with live in extreme poverty, surviving on less than $1.25 a day with little access to healthcare. OUR MEDICAL PROGRAM Clinica la Esperanza invites students and people with medical training—such as Paramedics, Nurses, PAs, and Physicians—to volunteer or intern with our onsite physician. If you’re interested in building your career or learning about medicine in a developing country, come work with us! Our clinic offers quality medical care to some of the poorest communities in Central America. Our patients are Chortí Maya Indians—direct descendants of the Maya, whose civilization dominated Mexico and Central America for thousands of years. Copán Ruinas, where our clinic is located, is a World Heritage Site with famous Mayan ruins located less than 800 yards from our front gate. OUR SCHOOL SUPPLY PROGRAM Since 1996, we’ve been providing school supplies—notebooks, pens, pencils, erasers, crayons, and pencil sharpeners (and maybe some lollipops and small toys!)—to children in remote mountain schools all around Copán, Honduras. We visit each classroom four times per year, and through this program, families in deep poverty—many surviving on just $1.25 USD per day—have been able to send their children at least to elementary school. Join us as a volunteer: your help will have a direct impact on bringing the next generation out of extreme poverty and on toward success. OUR DISASTER RESPONSE TRAINING PROGRAM In a disaster, the first 72 hours after the event are the most important. That is when the most lives can be saved and the most property salvaged. It’s also that long before international disaster response teams can be mobilized—so we train and equip Central American Firefighters and Emergency Medical Technicians. This kind of immediate assistance and long-term training can save far more lives than a reliance on outside help. Not just in disaster situations, but also in the smaller-scale emergencies that happen every day. BECOME A PARTNER Our partners provide invaluable support to keep our programs running in Honduras and Guatemala. SPONSOR A SCHOOL Imagine a child living in a village with no electricity or even running water—yet now he can communicate with the world through his local school. Many of our schools are high in the mountains with a direct line of sight to Copán’s Internet providers below, meaning if they have Internet access, they also can access professional education services beyond what their teachers currently are able to provide. A school can be fully equipped with everything needed for under $2,500 for hardware and just $49.00 per month per school for high-speed Internet service. Please contact us to learn more.

Cuori 3.0 è un’associazione nata per svolgere attività di beneficenza e supporto sociale indirizzati a persone in attesa di trapianto cardiaco, cardio-trapiantati e alle loro famiglie, un punto di riferimento per chi si accinge ad affrontare questa grande sfida, una sorta di guida lungo il percorso verso la rinascita. La Vision di Cuori 3.0 si basa su un approccio “leggero”, ironico, a volte persino dissacrante alla malattia, perché con il sorriso e la speranza anche le prove più ardue fanno meno paura. “Prendete la vita con leggerezza, che leggerezza non è superficialità, ma planare sulle cose dall’alto, non avere macigni sul cuore.” Cuori 3.0 nasce dalla volontà di 7 ragazze: Cristina, 2 volte cardio-trapiantata, e le sue amiche più care, per dare supporto a chi si trova nella stessa situazione, partendo dalla propria esperienza personale. Mettendoci non solo l’impegno ma anche la faccia, per dar vita ad un’associazione che abbia anche un volto, anzi, sette: Cristina, Elena, Eleonora, Elisa, Sara, Sharon, Valentina. Hearts 3.0 is an association created to carry out charity and social support activities aimed at people awaiting heart transplant, cardio-transplant recipients and their families, a reference point for those who are about to face this great challenge, a sort of guide along the path to rebirth. The Vision of Hearts 3.0 is based on a "light", ironic, sometimes even irreverent approach to illness, because with a smile and hope even the most difficult trials are less scary. "Take life lightly, that lightness is not superficiality, but gliding over things from above, not having boulders on your heart." Hearts 3.0 was born from the will of 7 girls: Cristina, twice cardio-transplanted, and her closest friends, to give support to those who are in the same situation, starting from their own personal experience. By putting in not only the commitment but also the face, to give life to an association that also has a face, indeed, seven: Cristina, Elena, Eleonora, Elisa, Sara, Sharon, Valentina.

I have a passion for sports, football is one of my favourites and one day I wish I can own a soccer team. While I was in high school, I always wanted to be a lawyer but due to financial constraints I could not become one. My interest in the justice system came when I realised that the late former president Mr Nelson Mandela was also a lawyer representing his people. I wish one day I could give back to my community and its people because my community gave us the likes of the late Steve Bantu Biko, one of the BCM Members who fought for the people of South Africa. My community is one of the underdeveloped communities of this country, but I know that one day all of this will change because I know that with education anything is possible. When a child is educated communities will change for the better and if one community changes, then our country will change for the better as well and poverty will be no more. Education topped with one’s perseverance is the key to a bright future for all. With this pandemic people have lost their jobs and in some households you find that no one is working and people resort to drugs and alcohol, some get depressed to a point of taking their own lives. If we can start developing jobs for people, our continent would become a better place for us all. Being part of an initiative that supports the empowerment of those less privileged is one of my greatest wishes. I will be glad if all my wishes do come through because nothing is as important as education and hard work, and an educated country means a better world for us all.

My name is Glorymar Hernandez, but I prefer to be called “Glory”. I was born in the capital of Venezuela, Caracas, and grew up amid the crowds of the city, the tranquility of the Andean mountains and the joy of the Caribbean coast. A mixture that has taught me to enjoy wherever I am, that aroused my curiosity to know the world, and that has helped me to adapt, with relative ease, to changes. I have a degree in Philosophy, my research works are in Philosophy of Language. Since 2019 I have been working as a Spanish teacher. I decided to start teaching my mother tongue thanks to my experience learning other languages. I had the opportunity to live for a year in Ireland, where I went to learn English and, currently, I am in Italy, where I have had the opportunity to learn Italian. These experiences allowed me to realize that, although seeking perfection when trying to “speak like a native” is the ideal, what really matters is being able to communicate, make ourselves understood and be open to the experience of knowing other cultures and understand that there are many different points of view. Professionally, I have had the opportunity to work in different contexts such as banking, outsourcing consular procedures, and teaching at university level. The biggest lesson I learned from these experiences is that I am not an office person. I prefer to own my time and have the freedom to work wherever I am. For this reason, I have decided to dedicate myself to teaching Spanish online and to enter the digital world. I consider myself a very curious and versatile person, that is why in my free time I enjoy handcrafting (such as sewing or knitting), volunteering, being in contact with nature, and trying to learn new things, like playing the guitar. Regarding my geographical preferences, the beach and the mountains are my main refuges, because I can escape from the noise of the city and connect with myself. That is why I would like to be able to live with my husband on a mountain, not far from the sea.

In 2005, I graduated from Varsity College with a Diploma in Travel and Tourism with aspirations of travelling worldwide in my profession. Things didn’t quite work out that way, having worked in retail and a company assisting young people to live and work in the UK. In the last decade or so, I’ve been in the tourism industry behind the scenes, working for an online holiday accommodation booking agency and more recently a company that does tours and safaris in Southern Africa. I also do freelance work remotely, such as, captioning for a speech-to-text service and social media evaluation. I am an introvert but enjoy working with and being in the company of others, while also enjoying being on my own. In the past I used to view being an introvert as a weakness because those higher up in the ranks of the companies I worked for were extroverted but in recent times I realised how much of a strength it is being an introvert as I also have a strong sense of empathy, which I believe is key in Customer Service and building interpersonal relationships with colleagues and clients. I’m passionate about customer service and going the extra mile and l love that feeling of knowing that I’ve made a difference in someone’s day, whether big or small. People tend to describe me as hardworking, punctual, efficient, dependable and trustworthy. Covid-19 affected the tourism industry drastically, however, I still want to travel anywhere I can, just soaking up the different cultures and experiences. The last year has been both challenging and rewarding and it has made me see things in a different light and so it has been somewhat of a new beginning for me. I am motivated now more than ever to seek out new passions and adventures, and to get out of my comfort zone.

Wamkelekile (‘Welcome’ in isiXhosa) to one and all! My name is Iman Martin – ‘Iman’ having both Arabic and African meanings for ‘faith’. Just like my name, I come from a multicultural background: my mom has Indian and Malaysian origins, while my dad is from the Griqua people/clan in South Africa. In the same vein, I am a Muslim and have Christian relatives, with who I am very close. It is because of my diverse background that I feel I was raised to be both tolerant and respectful towards those that are of a different culture, religion, or ethnicity. Cape Town has been the only home I know, and I’ve never ventured far out of it. I do however envision myself travelling to different parts of the world a few years from now. I am passionate about women’s empowerment and women having the choice to choose for themselves! I have recently graduated from the University of Cape Town, with a Bachelor of Social Work (Psychology Major) and placed on the Dean’s Merit List, awarded for consistent academic achievement. Through hard work and perseverance, I was fortunate to have received a scholarship from the Department of Social Development for three of my four years of study. My mini-thesis explored the experiences and challenges of 1st-year students at UCT adjusting to university. Studying social work has not only allowed me to better understand those around me and their thought processes but also, to better understand myself and the possible reasons why I am the way I am. As part of my course requirements, I had to complete field practicals – by putting the theory that I was learning in class to practice in a real-world environment. My field practice experience ranged along a spectrum: from providing social work services to underprivileged youth in a primary school in Bonteheuwel, to interning in the more affluent area of Upper Wynberg, at an international school. This experience further fostered my innate empathy and non-judgemental outlook for those around me. I am someone who is not afraid to get my hands dirty, work hard and help out where I can: currently job hunting, I have occasionally been helping my father with renovations to his property that include painting, plastering, applying putty, etc. This has taught me many practical things that I hope to apply when I own my own house one day. A few months before now, I worked as a Personal Assistant to a therapist and social worker. This was a remote job that taught me valuable organisation and time-management skills. In my early years of study, I found myself working a sales assistant job at the Robben Island Museum Gateway store, and found that my favourite part of the job was interacting with the different tourists that happened upon our humble store and hearing their stories – where they were from and why they decided to visit SA, etc. I love reading, and since a young age, I’ve been considered a bookworm. I mainly enjoy supernatural and sci-fi novels and webcomics, as well as other forms of content such as newspaper and magazine articles (need to know what’s happening in the world around me). English was also my favourite subject at school, and I think this was also encouraged by my English-teacher mother who was quick to correct any incorrect grammar and pronunciation when my siblings and I spoke incorrectly. I often assisted her in marking her learners’ English examination scripts and as a result, am quick to pick up on spelling or grammatical errors. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, long walks with my dog Ninja, and photography. This has led me to submit a piece that is currently being exhibited at the Zeits Mocca Art Museum, in their long-running ‘Home is Where The Art Is’ exhibition. Furthermore, my faith has given me strength through the darkest times and taught me to be tolerant and understanding of those around me. I am still very much figuring life and myself out as I go along and am always open to learning from those around me.
