Monique is a midwife in Nampossela, Mali; she has focused her life on making childbirth easier on many of the women in her community.

We visit her house regularly, she is very close and dear to my heart. Her home symbolises my childhood I spent half of my life in her house. I have good and bad memories in her house, like the time my aunt, sister and I brought the garden hose from the roof to the first floor to fill the pool, or the time when I got a nose bleed because of a soccer accident. My grandmother makes me feel safe, happy and make me realise how lucky I am that I have a grandmother as great as mine. The writer’s grandmother’s home and my grandmother’s home have many things in common.
Here on campus at the University of Alabama I am member of the sorority Delta Zeta where we have our chapter meetings every Monday night from 6:30-7:30pm. I feel that being apart of Delta Zeta has helped me contribute the most to our campus because of how involved I have become through it. For example, I participated in a program called RISE last semester where I would meet with a group of my sisters every Wednesday from 7-8pm and each week we would discuss things like service and how we can give back to our community. At the end of the program we did a service project with a nursing home here in Tuscaloosa and painted with the residence, as well as played bingo with them. This is just one of the many examples of how Delta Zeta has helped
Hey, no problem and guess who I ran into yesterday? Mrs. Razyck in the Belleville Shoprite and speaking of her, it was her daughter who told me that you were retiring. Mrs. Hungler was awesome, and I hope she is enjoying her retirement. I ran into her about a year ago in Nutley Library and she told me she was retiring. Speaking of English teachers, I 've also run into Mrs. Graziano and we spent 15 minutes talking about To Kill a Mockingbird.

My grandmother loved my grandfather so much she was always by his side twenty four hours a day caring for him. She had nurses to help her out since taking care of him was a full time job. My grandmother knew putting him in a home would only make him sicker, and she wanted him to have the best she could provide for him in his last days. My grandmother’s role in my grandfather's life has shown me what unconditional love truly is. In the short story, “The Moths”, by Helena Maria Viramontes, a Latin girl is unconditionally taking care of her dying grandmother.

All nursing staff with a scanning rate above 90 percent received a positive email from their director reporting their scanning rate and thanking them for doing an awesome job.
When I was thirteen years old I took a trip to Itta Bena, MS to visit my grandmother, a local midwife who helped deliver 95% of the population there. On the first day of arrival we sat and talked about everything that she could possibly think of: growing up in the south, favorites foods, my grandfather but mostly we spoke about her career as a Midwife. She spoke with much passion about her career and her love for babies often saying “I love all babies… Black, blue, white or orange they all have a place in my heart”. Two years later I revisited the subject in my sophomore year child development class, though this time I began to learn the history of midwives and their tasks. Until the 20th century, when trained physicians and hospitals became the norm place of delivery, midwives provided most of the care for poor and rural women throughout the south.
