My life goal is to become a nurse practitioner and support my future family. Growing up, my parents were constantly working to provide for the essentials my sibling and I needed. I don't want to struggle finically as much as my parents did. I am most passionate about helping the sick. I was born with brachymetatarsia and being in the hospital allowed me to have nurses as my family. Seeing how nurses treat patients and each other made me realize I would love to be part of the nursing family. High school was difficult for me to attend being in and out of the hospital. I was unable to receive the grades I wanted and had to repeat a couple of classes because I didn't know certain material. I believe that I am a great candidate because I have been working very hard to maintain my grades in order to get me into nursing programs in a few years and I know nursing school is expensive. Bold.org is about students who have taken on bold activities in their life and I believe that I am one of those students.
