to provide a breath of fresh air to those in need
One thing that inspires me to achieve my goal as a Respiratory Therapist is seeing those in need of care and assist in improving their quality of life. Breathing is one of the most important function of the body and without that, the body will not function. I want to aid in the healthcare that the world needs today in hopes to save more lives.

to give support to those who have lost a parent.
My goal is driven by the emotional stress I suffered when losing both parents. Losing a parent is becoming a more common event in teen's lives. I aspire to be a light to those who have lost a parent because SUCCESS can come from SUFFERING.

Alex wants to show how "autism speaks"
Alex was diagnosed as autistic later than most. When we moved 8 years ago, his new school saw his challenges the 1st day. Wouldn't get out of his "safety zone" under the desk; rocked & finger flapped. Now Alex is a high-functioning student & 4 sport athlete. He pushes himself for his dreams. He’s a great cook. He wants to be a chef.

I want to Prove to myself i can do it.
I never wanted anything more in life than to feel proud of myself. Pursing my dreams of Physical Therapy would reach that goal. I have had a thing for helping anyone or anything. I just have this kindness in my heart that was made to give others the feeling of pride. I just want myself to see that you can succeed in anything you put your mind too.

I want to continue to make a difference.
I like the fact that I have been able to impact people lives and make a difference by encouraging them to do better, feeding them, giving them warm and dry clothes, or simply letting them in my home to sleep. The jobs that I apply for that will allow me to continue require that I obtain a degree. I enjoy making people smile.

I want to motivate people, and inspire them to succeed!
I SUCCEED BECAUSE I AM WILLING TO FIGHT AGAINST THE ODDS. I WILL SACRIFICE, I AM NOT SHACKLED BY FEAR, INSECURITY OR DOUBT. I FEEL THOSE EMOTIONS, DRINK THEM IN, & THEN SWALLOW THEM AWAY TO THE BLACKNESS OF HELL. I AM MOTIVATED BY ACCOMPLISHMENT, NOT PRIDE. PRIDE CONSUMES THE WEAK AND KILLS THEIR HEART FROM WITHIN.

to be a role model for all young Native Americans
Growing up in a small town I see a lot of crime going on in my reservation. Stuttering all my life it keeps my from doing a lot but I don't let that get to me. My aspiration in life is to be happy and pursue my career as an X-ray Technician. Helping my parents with their bills stops me from achieving my college goals mainly financial crisis,
