“I thought I was going to stay in Colombia and go to a university and study medicine because my passion is saving lives and keeping people healthy,” says Betancourt. “But I’ve noticed with the passing of time that, although it’s a wonderful career, there’s a ton of doctors out there already. If I worked to be a doctor, I could only treat patient by patient. If I go into public health, or a similar career, I could impact thousands of people.”
