COMM 4020: Public Life Reporting Edgar F. Miles


“I really love helping people because I’ve had a lot of people help me in my life. I want to help people who can’t afford medical care.”

“I suffer from depression, too, so I feel like any little thing that somebody does for me, it honestly does make a difference. And when I am helping other people it makes that sadness go away for a little bit. While I’m helping them and actually see that they really appreciate it, you know, that’s what makes me happy.”

“I don’t want to sound mean or anything, but I don’t really want to help upper-class people or middle-class people. I don’t want to be a doctor for them because they don’t appreciate it as much. They just don’t care; they expect it. Lower-class people, they’re grateful that they’re even getting anything because they know that they can’t afford it.”

“I’m pursuing my degree to become a physician assistant. I’m going to apply to some different PA schools. And if that doesn’t work out, I’m going to join the Peace Corps to see if I can help there. Just knowing that I made a little bit of difference for somebody is just super awesome.”

“I’m a Spanish minor, too, so I feel like I want to help people in Latin American countries because they don’t have the healthcare system that we do have here.”
