Being in Health Occupational Students of America has molded me into a health conscious person, who always wants to do as much as possible to help in any situation. I learned how to perform CPR and First Aid training at my local military base because on a family vacation I was witness to a life or death situation, where a woman began to lose consciousness. I was frightened and wanting to help but left clueless, my mother began chest compressions and I became sick at my lack of knowledge and inability to come to the woman 's aid. I joined the courses and became familiar with the techniques and every two years, I sign up to keep my license and certifications. Throughout the years I have also obtained my hunting license, gun safety license, fishing license, boating license, and became a certified para professional.

I am passionate about becoming a registered nurse and I love taking care of people so when I will take the course and I felt like a failure I wanted to give it all up. When I took my certified nursing assistant exam I pass it and I started to apply for jobs and within the next few days I was getting calls I started a new job as a certified nursing assistant and I had to attend a training and I 'm already good at what I do. Being at the hospital and or nursing home is such a good feeling because you are making people around you happy who may not have family that home or pet or people to just talk to. I want to continue my education by going to college and getting my bachelors in nursing and then maybe my masters to become a nurse practitioner and then I can open up my range of help to people.
