God created us to be functional and unique. You feel called to understand how bodies operate and how to do restorative work. Being an advocate for God’s creation to live full abundant lives is something that feels true to you.

3. You are detailed and analytical:

You love taking the extra time to make sure you fully comprehend something and find joy in digging into all the details. You understand the importance of making sure you take a moment to get a full picture of the task in front of you.

4. You are motivated by challenging material:

You love an academic challenge. Subjects like science and math come pretty naturally to you and you find yourself being motivated by concepts that take extra work to understand.

5. You want to help people:
