BATH TOWNSHIP — Natalie Crowe, 17, a junior at Bath High School, is hoping to become a doctor one day. She was inspired by a relative’s fight with cancer.
“My grandmother had breast cancer and she died when I was really young, so if I can help people that are in similar situations, I would like to,” said Crowe.
She doesn’t remember much about her grandmother since she was “three or four” when she died. “I want to give other people the opportunity to know their family,” she said.
She’s still trying to decide where to do her studies and she’s been looking at either Notre Dame or the University of Michigan.
She’s not sure yet what medical field will be her specialty.
“I don’t know quite yet because when you get to medical school you get to try all of the different vocations. I’m leaning right now towards more like pediatrics of family medicine,” said Crowe.
Music is also a very important part of her life.
“I’m really involved with the band. I’m a field commander. I’m a section leader for the symphony band,” she says.
She plays French horn in the symphony band and plays the trumpet in the jazz band at the school.
She’s also the president of the political club at Bath High School.
“We have people bring up a topic that they would like to talk about. They create a presentation, and we discuss it. We’ve dealt with animal rights. The best one I think we’ve had so far is the corruption of the corn industry and how corn products are in everything,” she said.
Crowe is also a member of the National Honor Society.
She says she really enjoys the close-knit feeling she gets with her classmates at Bath.
“Most of the people we’ve known since we were in kindergarten. It’s nice to know all of your classmates and because we’re such a smaller school that you can have friendships outside of your class,” she said.
