Kameron Rymer always had a desire to help others, but through a unique learning program, she discovered she could turn her giving spirit into a lifelong passion.
Kameron is a determined young Explorer, currently developing her talents in the medical field through the Memorial Hermann Katy Medical Explorers Post. Through Exploring, she’s able to cultivate her skills and gain firsthand experience by learning directly from medical professionals.
BSA’s Exploring program gives youth like Kameron the guidance needed to succeed on the path toward discovering their future.
The Explorer shares, “Originally, I thought I wanted to be a veterinarian, but over time, I learned my true passion was helping people.”
Kameron credits Exploring for introducing her to the medical field because of the opportunity the program has given her to develop interests through real-life experiences. Now, Kameron is better-equipped to turn her penchant for helping others into a career.
“At Explorer meetings, the heart of it is getting to hear from medical professionals,” she explains.
Professionals throughout a multitude of medical fields attend Kameron’s Exploring meetings to share stories, answer questions, and offer career insight to youth. Explorers in her post also learn through hands-on activities such as touring operating rooms and ambulances, and have even seen the inside of a Memorial Hermann Life Flight helicopter.
“The Explorers program has really just shown me people’s stories—people who are actually involved in the careers, people who love what they do, do what they love…[and] what they love about what they do.”
