“When I was 14, I started volunteering for the government’s emergency services. One day, we had a call to attend a motorcycle accident with two injured people, we got into the ambulance and we went to the scene of the incident. When we arrived at the scene, I saw that the two injured people were my brother and my cousin! I couldn’t believe it was both of them! In that particular occasion, I helped the paramedics by immobilizing both patients in the stretcher before they were transferred to the hospital.
Two weeks after this accident, I found out that I had been accepted to the Escuela de Cruz Roja Mexicana en Nuevo León, I was going to be a professional paramedic! I am very proud of my decision; in the near future, I will be able to professionally help more people who are going through situations where their lives are on the line”.
