    I can’t wait to see a sick neonate transform into a strong baby. I will be seen as a hero to those families for saving their babies life, and they will be my little heroes for showing me strength does not come in age, but is unique to every individual.

It is watching them transform into strong individuals and knowing that some day they will be able to change someone else’s life like the way I hope I…

So hopefully by my sophomore year in college I will be taking all the classes I need to become a nurse, and if that don’t work I’m going to take the classes I need to become a social worker.

    I researched and researched before deciding the Everest program was right for me and I intend to be the most successful student I can be while in the program. In order to do this I’ve initiated many plans and life changes with the support of my family to be able to give nursing school 110% of my time and effort. After having worked 40-hours since the 11th grade I will be cutting back to working at the most two days a week, subject to change if I have clinicals or need extra study days in a quarter. I have the financial support of my mother and grandparents to take that added stress off of me while in my journey to finish the program.
