Optical Engineering to a 14-Year-Old Girl
Author(s): Ronald G. Driggers

Paper Abstract

I am writing the editorial this month with my daughter, Madison Driggers (otherwise known as Maddie). She is 14 years old, beautiful, makes good grades, has lots of friends, is very popular, and overall, is a great daughter. She really likes Justin Bieber and is going to one of his concerts in a week. I asked her today what she wanted to do after high school. She said she definitely wants to go to college, but her primary interest is medicine. Her reasons are: her mom is an OB/GYN doctor (a big influence), doctors make really good money, and they help people (so it’s satisfying and gratifying). Maddie likes babies, so she is likely to be an OB/GYN doctor.
