It’s amusing most of our healthcare options start with the letter M. And appropriately so, because much of it is a convoluted mess!
It has been this way for at least as long as I’ve been alive, or at least since I was in preschool. That is when my adopted father died, leaving his wife a new single mother with two young children.
Family members: Father, Brian Borda, mother, Stacy Borda, sister, Brianna Borda
Favorite subject: My favorite subject is actually more of a class I am taking. I am a student in Protective Services at Bethlehem Area Vocational Technical School. I love this class because I learn things that pertain to my interests and will help me in my future career. Our class is based on police, fire, EMS and military work.
