My dream is to be a nurse, and help people, but one of the things I love more than anything is acting. Finding a way to combine the two would be an amazing opportunity for me. I would love to be able to help my critical child patients to forget their problems for a while, in acting, whether it is watching a play or being a part of one. Or if it were nothing more than me being the silly nurse who is always making the children giggle with crazy voices and faces. I want to help people to have a chance at a better life, and for some that isn’t an option, but helping them learn about plays could help them be someone else who wasn’t dying for 2 hours while entertaining their friends and family. This is a way I could take something I love doing and combine it with my dream job. My college schedule for the nursing program is extremely rigorous, but I also hope to be involved in the plays and musicals to help stay brushed up on my acting skills. My goal is to get a significant part in one of the plays, and still keep my grades up.
