One of the first projects we did with our Rotaract club was, a water project at the local hospital.
The average wait time at the hospital is about 3 hours on some days there are about 400 people there and no air conditioning. This was a short term project and we are trying to do more long term projects like raise funds for an air conditioning system, bathroom etc.If anyone wants to help or get involved, Plz let me know.
I have now completed My third semester at the university.
This semester in many ways was the most difficult I have had. There were many things that happen that I had not planned for, and even those thing that I had planned for just did not go the way I expected them to.
Like my mama says make sure to make some plans, but make sure you write them in pencil because you might have to go at em with an eraser before you know it.
But for now I am thankful to be finished with this semester, thankful for all the lessons learned, and new friends made. Look forward to the future with hope. With the assurance that if I do my best the Lord will surely do the rest.
I am ready and anxious to get out of Tegucigalpa and get back to Roatan. Ready to get some of that greasy, bad for me, bojangles fried chicken!!! Did I mention I’m thinking about a specialty in nutrition. One thing at a time people, one thing at a time.
I’m also looking forward to getting back to work with our Rotaract club, trying to get new people involved and see what new exciting projects we can come up with. Also looking forward to seeing my family and friends.
I will try to add some pictures of what I did last break, with our rotaract club and stuff later on.
I got an 82 in volleyball. I know that doesn’t like much or much of an acomplishment, but I assure if you knew me and had ever saying around a ball, or playing any type of sports for that matter, I would be getting standing ovations for this.
See from when I was little I would rather read a book, play dominoes, hide and seek, anything that did not require the type of competitive physical skills needed for most ball games. I really wish someone had push me to do it because now I keep wanting to do it and truth is I suck. But everybody was glad to let me be the smart bookworm guy.
Now I’m not saying that had the done that I would have been good, truth is I have terrible hand eye coordination. But I would not have been the shipwreck I am today when it comes to sports. I mean I’m not kidding my volleyball coach keep saying don’t hurt yourself kid, and after about three weeks I was sure I was gonna fail this class.
Anyway my mamma says its never too late to start learning. And yea I got an 82 percent in volleyball!!!! Thinking about going for basketball next semester. I’m 5 foot 9 and weigh 235 pounds, we’ll see how that goes.
I’ve already told you probably more about myself than you care to know. Therefore, I’ve decided to tell ya a little bit about the medical program I’m in.
As I’ve said before I attend the National Autonomous Universiy in Tegucigalpa (UNAH). The medical program at the university is the only public program in the country, it is also the oldest and most prestigious and listed in IMED. There are two private medical programs in the country one at the catholic university (UNICAH), and the newest at the (UNITEC). They are both very expensive and have real structural problems.
The program is and 8 year program of general medicine and surgery.It is a four step program. The first step ( two years) is one that has been highly debated it is a fundamental step. It consist of 18 classes. The university says this step is necesary because of the problems with our high school system. They argue that a lot of students come out of high school not having the basic knowledge and skills necesary to strive in the medical program. Step two start at the faculty of medicine with what are called the morphological classes. Step three start at the end of fourth year it is what are called the angelical years because you get to dress in white and start caring for patients. Step four are the last two years which includes one intern year and one year of social service. At beggining of step four you start to get paid, lest than the janitor at this point, but money is money. The university also offers several Post-graduate degrees in various branches of medicine.
