After I moved to the United States, my parents used to take me to the emergency room at least every other month because of my asthma. That time was an eye-opener to what I wanted to do with my life. The nurses were the ones caring about my feelings, completing my physical examination, taking my vital signs, interviewing me to figure out the root of my problem, and notify the providers. At that point, I thanked God for making me go through that path to realize that my dream was to become a nurse.

    She hoped that talking to me would change that. When we were alone in the hospital room my mother grabbed my ear like she always did when I did something wrong and pulled me over to her side. While smiling as I was wincing in pain she explained to me how high school was just a stepping stone to set me up for the future and pleaded with me to try to do well and I promised her that I would.
