Not many young people can say that they found their life calling at seven, but I did. For very personal, family reasons I knew that I wanted to minister to people through their ailments and become a nurse. It was only two years ago, however, that I saw the greater need of people here at home in the United States and many abroad who need medical services, but can’t afford them. That’s where I come in. I am desperate to be able to get an education and fulfill my life’s dream of becoming a pediatric nurse. I want to do my part in bringing peace, health, love and kindness in the world. It is a great desire of mine to be a person who shows a servant’s heart; one who gives to others because it is the right thing to do. I want to be an agent of peace to people and show them the unconditional love that God has shown me. After college graduation, I aim to be a traveling nurse. On my recent mission trip to Brazil, I was able to see that people outside of my culture need love and nurturing too. I refuse to overlook children that live in poverty and see them struggle with health issues that can’t be addressed because of a lack of finances. I envision a world where children are not forced to live in poverty so I will strive to educate their parents as a nurse-instructor on services available to them.
