As I followed my passion for helping others it lead to my
purpose: becoming a nurse.

I have
developed both personally and professionally though my journey thus far as a

ambition of caregiving and began volunteering for the Special Children’s
Center, an after school program for children with cognitive disabilities. The
managers of the programs recognized my contagious energy and passion for

engaging communities while promoting health for over a century is their
mission. I can say with absolute conviction that I will be a remarkable
contributor to the Primary nurse practitioner program at UPen,
