One of the most important things to me besides family and friends would be getting my nursing degree. Most kids want to be the president or a sports player but not me; I always wanted to be a nurse. It was just in my nature to care of others before myself. When I turned sixteen years old, I received my Nursing Assistant License and have been working at Bethany Nursing Home in Waupaca, WI.
