I always had a desire to one day be the student that shines the brightest, just as my name signifies. I believe I am the best selection for this scholarship because of my leadership abilities, community service, substantial goals, and great interests. I will be the first to admit that I did not have an overflowing amount of high school leadership roles, but personally, I felt that I could be a much more effective leader if I only took on a few rather than a whole lot. As a leader I can see where the most growth is needed in my group and I am able to assign roles that relate to the members particular strengths. For example, I serve as the Chair of Activities for my Support the Troops Club, and as we were preparing for our walk I assigned …show more content…
At first I was thinking of being a pediatrician, but while I was out completing a day of job shadowing I soon discovered that being a pediatric nurse was the best fit for me. I desire the vast amounts of patient interaction and the chance to be the nurse that provides a calming effect on a child that is facing a very stressful medical situation. I aspired to work in the position that provided me with the most face-to-face time with patient and my research showed that most physicians spent less than twenty minutes with each of their patients (statista.com). I also have a goal of continuing my education to become a nurse practitioner. From my career choice I think that it is quite easy to see that one of my top interests is children. I have over seventeen nieces and nephews and I love spending time with them and babysitting. Singing has also been a passion of mine ever since preschool and I have recently discovered a hidden attraction to spoken word pieces.

While going into the program I knew healthcare was for me, but I was unsure of what field to purse. Amongst the variety of departments I worked in, the one that stood out the most was my time in the obstetrics and pediatric floor. After graduating from the Academy, my path was clear and I had a mind set on where I see myself in ten years. Becoming a pediatrician will allow me to reach my life long goals of helping others. As a pediatrician caring for young children, I will be able to impact the lives of not only the patients but their families as well.

I was always jealous of others that were naturally outgoing, so I decided to make a change. I started by taking a student council class, which has truly pushed me to go outside of my comfort zone, and I've become a better leader because of it. In fact, a couple of weeks ago, I hosted a pep assembly in front of the entire school, and I actually enjoyed it a lot. I am now one of the most extroverted and friendly people you'd meet because I put in the time and effort to better myself. Now that you better understand who I am and what my goals are, I would like the opportunity to explain the many ways this scholarship will help me achieve my

Being very goal orientated I have many goals for my future nursing career. One specific short term goal would be having the honor to get accepted into the one school I have always dreamed of attending, Allen College, to earn my Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree. Once I am accepted to a nursing program a goal I feel very strongly about is continuing to keep my grade point average at a 3.8 or higher level. I plan to accomplish this goal by completely applying myself and my time to my program, only letting my dedication for nursing continue to grow, and getting as involved as possible in my school and my learning. Most importantly, my short term goal is to obtain my Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree and get a job at The University of Iowa

At the age of ten being raised by minority parents was very difficult for me at the time. At the age of ten I was forced for my English and Spanish vocabulary to be very proficient due to always translating for my parents. At that age learning both languages was annoying, frustrating, and difficult; however that experience shaped me to be a proficient bilingual nurse present and gain benefits by being bilingual. The benefits where the many open job opportunities with the increase pay. This experience also assisted to raise my daughter to speak and write both languages actively although just not the way my parents forced it on me.

As a first generation student to attend college from a family of seven, the journey to a higher education has been arduous and overwhelming. My family gives me all the encouragement I need and are very optimistic about pursuing a higher degree. Unlike myself, my parents did not have the opportunity to attend college.
