Self-Reflection:
My level of interest is that I would want to do this, because I think it would be fun. I also think that I would prefer to do the driving because I don’t really have a weak stomach when it comes to blood. I would also like to help with getting people on the gurney. I think that the EMT’s have such a hard job but I would be thrilled to do some job shadowing.
