I would like to become a pharmacist.
Born in Chicago and moving to many major cities, I've seen and heard many stories of drug abuse and family struggles. My mom was a pharmacy technician for half her career before becoming a nurse. She inspired me to work hard for everything no matter how hard it seemed. I want to inspire others in the same way as well as having a healthy lifestyle.

Growing up it was always a struggle financially and a few months ago I realized that if I didn't do something else with my life I would lead the same life for my future family.

to become a nurse And help others.
What really helps drive me to me achieve my goal is that people are always in need of help left and right. This one time my grandfather was ill in the hospital for two months straight and it was devastating that I as a person who wants to become a Registered Nurse saw that many Nurses didn't have the compassion I want to deliver to others.

I was impacted by my teachers and coaches in a big way. I would love to do the same for my future students. Our education system needs teachers who want to teach and change lives.

The goal i set, is to become a better me. Just like several other, I would like to change the world, and help everyone. Small problem, you can not change people nor can you help everyone.
