Maya Angelou’s “Graduation” tells the story of how Angelou graduates and how her brother helps her along the way.

Each woman was interviewed with the “breakfast interview” a tool that consists of questions about the mother’s thoughts and feelings at a given moment about their infant.

This study shows that the motherhood constellation exists during pregnancy, meaning mothers are already mentally preparing physically and emotionally for the arrival of their infants.

I am requesting this scholarship to help pursue my dream to become a registered nurse to be able to help and lead others. I want to be able to help people get well. Also to give premature babies a voice to be heard, and to be healthy to survive. I have always wanted to be a nurse ever since my twin and I were born at twenty-nine weeks in critical condition.

Here I cared for women who experienced miscarriage and early pregnancy loss on a daily basis. I also on occasion cared for women following a stillbirth or early neonatal death. During this time I assisted in the planning and organisation of the annual remembrance service. I was struck by the large number of bereaved parents who attended and the appreciation they showed to the staff that looked after them. The experience I gained here encouraged me to apply for the Higher Diploma in Midwifery.
My grandmother was the nurse that inspired me to pursue the profession. I am so thankful that she is still here to witness me getting closer to that goal. I’ve always wanted to fulfill her foot steeps and make her proud. I am the first one in my family to attend college, and I am very proud of myself for this accomplishment, but it has been a very tough road getting to this place. As most of my family is working class that did not attend college I was expected to get a job right after high school.
