Self-Reflection-

I think this job is very interesting and has some great aspects to it. I don’t think that I would
want to do this job though because it is very serious, and the heart is one of the most important organs
in someone’s body and if I were to make a mistake they could potentially die, and I would not want that
much responsibility. I would feel to pressured and stressed out. It also takes a lot of school and time that
I don’t want to spend on school.
