My parents always told me to brush my teeth morning and night, but it was not until high school that I actually realized why I did that. So imagine my parents learned from their school and encouraged me, but if a villager living in a shanty town does not know the importance of oral hygiene, how will his children learn? Who is there to teach them?. Becoming aware of oral diseases and their cause is the most important thing that the unfortunate community requires the most and suffers the greatest. Studying in the USA, I believe that I am not only getting an internationally recognized education, but also a thrifty one. My decision to study here will help me become independent. In addition, the money I save by studying here will eventually help me fulfill my life's dream: to open a free dental clinic with oral hygiene classes in Pakistan. Even with the proficiency in speaking and understanding Arabic, Urdu and English I have a passion to learn more languages. Including hearing people I also want to target the deaf community. Learning and understanding languages will make it easier for me to reach and aid the poverty struck communities in third world countries, and I will also be able to comfort regular patients to provide them with a successful dental treatment. Whether there is a lack of knowledge, language problems, a disability, poverty or just ignorance, the entirety of my aim is to educate and help these people. Oral/dental care, and in fact any kind of care is one's duty; however, if they are unaware, it is the educated people's responsibility to guide them before their ignorance causes them harm. Protecting oral hygiene can save one from costly diseases. With my clinic and language skills I want to make change in people's lives and their oral cavities. Attending this SMDEP will bring me closer to my selfless goal.
