PROVIDENCE – Rexella Bishop, who is beginning her junior year at Central High School, spoke with enthusiasm about her ambition to become a doctor — and the advantage her enrollment in an innovative program will give her as she pursues that career.
“Ever since I was small, I knew I wanted to be in the medical field,” Bishop told Ocean State Stories. “But most of the time when people think of the medical field, they think they want to be a nurse or something like that. But I always knew I didn’t want to be a nurse.
“We love our nurses because nurses are very essential, but I just didn’t want to do that. I wanted to be a little bit more and so then I thought, ‘I want to be a doctor.’
