"I discovered the clinical laboratory technologist career path while working a dead end job as a quality assurance chemist. Due to the coronavirus, my desire to progress within my field has accelerated. After the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus a pandemic, I realized how threatening viral infections are, and how this career path is beyond a career advancement. I admire the perseverance of the essential workers. Their tenacity has inspired me to join the front lines and defend humanity from these biological threats. Not all heroes wear capes, some wear white lab coats."
