People say it’s never too late to follow your dreams. Many of us spend a lifetime making one of our dream come true. Here is a man that has made his career 3 times. His name is Dr. Jonny Kim based in the United States. He has made successful careers in three different fields.
Jonny goes from being a Navy Seal to a doctor and finally became a successful NASA astronaut. Many will be shocked to hear that he did all of it under the age of 37.
His journey started when he was a 16-year-old boy. He was very interested to join a Navy seal so, he enlisted himself for it. He never went to college which disappointed his mother so much.
When Jonny was leaving to join the military first career his mom cried. His mom wanted him to go to college and complete his studies.
He explained: “She didn’t like it very much. I think a lot of Asian Americans at least 20 years ago when I was going through this process just didn’t really, weren’t comfortable with it.”
He was determined to work in the military. He went on to become an elite Navy Seal team member. Kim completed 100 combat operations after finishing his training in Colorado.
He achieved many goals while being in the army. He served as a Special Operation Combat Medic, a navigator, and a sniper. That is not it, he is even Silver and Bronze Star with valor.
After his experiences in the military career, Kim went on to become a physician. He completed his degree at Harvard Medical School in 2016. Kim later explained that his experiences in a war zone made him think about becoming a doctor.
He also enrolled at the University of San Diego in 2021 to get a degree in Mathematics.
