Clemmie Bollant. The Fighter. The Comedian. Wants To Help Others. Medical Assistant Student.

During her freshman year in high school, Clemmie was a wrestling cheerleader. Clemmie stuck with the sport into her sophomore year, then decided that school should come first.

“Being a cheerleader was fun. I enjoyed dressing up in our uniform and being able to cheer and encourage our athletes to do their best. It was fun to have the younger sisters of the wrestler’s pretend to do cheers with us.”

Clemmie has battled medical issues throughout her whole life. In 2010, she was granted a wish through make a wish.

“I have always wanted to be in a photoshoot for a magazine. My wish came true when I went to Baltimore, Maryland. While I was out there I was in a photo shoot for Girl’s Life. It was really hot the day of the photoshoot because it was the middle of July and a bit over 100 degrees, I was also wearing long sleeves and jeans because it was for the fall issue.”

Clemmie was super happy to land a job at Forever 21.

“Forever 21 was probably the best job because it was one of the stores that I shopped at the most. And I got along with everyone and we were just like a little family. I loved my co-workers and I loved learning about different styles while working there.”

After attending a local college to complete her generals, Clemmie transferred to Southwest Tech and enrolled in the Medical Assistant program.

“I chose my program because I thought it would be cool and interesting to learn more about healthcare. I want to help people out like the people who took care of me.”

Clemmie is also a student ambassador on campus.

“I am very excited to be an ambassador. I like to interact with people and this way I can interact on a higher level and help students.”

After completing the Medical Assistant program, Clemmie plans to transfer to a university where she will be working towards her goal of becoming a Surgical Technician.

“Surgical Tech is something I’m not sure about. I have always wanted to work in the operating room and see what all really goes on during surgeries. But, as I’m getting older I’ve noticed myself getting a bit of a weak stomach. So, now I am not sure if I want to go on to become a surgical tech or just stick to Medical Assistant. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens.”
