Thank you, Mentors, for the generous scholarship to help me earn a degree that will allow me to continue to fulfill my passion of helping others. I will be attending Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph Missouri this fall to major in Nursing and then continue to pursue a higher degree in the field of nursing.
I have always enjoyed helping others. When I was little I would create cards or color pictures for neighbors when they weren’t feeling well. My grandma worked at a Nursing Home and every summer when I would stay there for a week, I would spend time each day helping with the activities provided for the residents. I became very close with some of them and would be sure when we returned to Grandma’s over Christmas to stop by to bring them a little gift. One of my strengths is an Includer, which means I’m always looking for ways to make sure others are taken care of and not left out.
