Since high school I have felt a calling towards aid work; for what is a man who does not better the world. I began volunteering at a local hospital and I thoroughly enjoyed helping those in physical and mental need. It was there I discovered my desire to work in the healthcare field, specifically nursing. From that point on I committed myself wholeheartedly to my studies. I knew how competitive nursing was and was determined to compete and succeed. I remember saying to myself (and to God) that if nursing was truly the place for me that it would be proven to me by excellent grades. I am proud to say that I am going into my third year of college and have GPA of 4.0. I have also been accepted into a well respected nursing program, so I am more confident than ever that I am in the right place. Additionally, once I complete my education and have a year or so of experience under my belt, I plan to join the humanitarian aid organization Doctors Without Borders. They need skilled nurses as much as doctors and I plan on fulfilling that need. I still have a few years of school left, so this road is far from over. However, I will not falter. I am confidant in my ability to succeed and work hard in both clinical and class settings. I have found my calling, my way to better the world. I will never let it go.
