Quote: “The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
I want to be a nurse because: Just like in the quote I love helping others in the time where they are most vulnerable and they need absolute care and compassion.
After I graduate: I want to become a trauma nurse, get my master’s in nursing and criminal justice, and build hospitals in developing nations.
One thing you may not know about me: I literally fear cats and dogs, mostly cats. Like my friends say, I am “PETrified.”
