Valedictorian, Wendy Guzman, graduated in the Fall of 2020. Her journey is like many others who go through the MA program at Peloton College. We sat down with Wendy to talk about her college journey.
What led you to enroll in the Medical Assistant program?
“My dream was always to be a nurse, to help people with my knowledge and the passion I have for this career. There are times when you have situations where you cannot meet your goals, but thank God for the support of my husband and children. I was able to achieve it.”
Why did you choose Peloton College?
“I didn’t choose Peloton College. Peloton College chose me! Why? Because I was looking through Facebook one day and Peloton College appears in my feed. I just filled out a few simple question and guess what? In less than 3 minutes I was contacted by the school and scheduled an interview. I thought I was never going to be part of this wonderful college because I had low self confidence due to many times trying to get into a college but the moment I put my feet in this school they didn’t let me go. I was accepted right away I was super happy my dreams were coming true.”
What was your experience like going through the program?
“I had the most excited experiences learning all about the medical field. Having amazing teachers such as Mrs. Rawls and Mrs. Harrison teaching you the right way was a blessing. What you have always dreamed of… knowing your life will turn 360 degrees in the medical field is such a wonderful feeling. You are never going to understand if you don’t have the passion.”
What was your favorite moment?
“My favorite moments would be when we go to lab practice with each other to take vitals, and draw blood. Of course, my most favorite moment was graduation day!”
What is your experience like working now as a MA?
“It feels wonderful knowing that I am helping my community with their languages. Most of them are Hispanic. I translate for them, take their vitals, give injections, draw blood and communicate with them. It was such an amazing decision I took to become a medical assistant.”
What does post graduate life looks like now?
“Graduate life changes because it opens up many opportunities in the medical field and helps you learn things that you did not imagine to be important. My life has taken a huge turn. I have more time to spend with my family and my goal is to continue studying more about medicine.
One of the things I would like to be is a radiologist and I hope to fulfill my goals and dreams next to my beautiful family and always trusting in God that everything I propose I can achieve and that no one is going to stop me!”
