Author Jamie Pastor Bolnick recollects thinking, “the baby was sick, or Robert was drunk or how my mom was going to pay the rent this month… I used to be an honor student, but my grades were shot to hell because all I’ve been missing” (Bolnick 27).

Before I came to America, I had never thought about college because my family could not afford for me to attend.

I’ve decided that I want to study nursing due to having to struggle with my family’s health. I’ve seen my father live in a nursing home on two separate occasions and noticed that some workers are very impolite and impatient. This helped me reach the conclusion that I want to care for people because there are some who do very unkindly, and it’s a way to become financially stable.
