However, when I was around 6 years old my parents divorced and I lived with my three brothers and my mom up until today. Although I grew up with my brothers in the house I was the youngest by about 10 years. So, as my mother raised brothers and me, being the only girl I noticed that my mother seemed to hold a double standard in the house between the boys and myself. One of the most memorable lessens I learned centered around my gender was that I must always look and act as a “Lady” would. This was taught through my trips with my mother to the nail salon from before I can remember, getting my ears pierced at 1 year old, always being encouraged to wear feminine colors such as pink or purple, among many other things.
I went to the kitchen and opened a bag of Honey Butter Chips before going back to my room and letting my body fall backwards onto the bed.

Later that day, with this sermon thumping through my mind, I went to Gloria’s Nail Salon in Alston because my sister had sent me a Groupon for my birthday. I had never been there before but acted like I knew what I was doing—like I always kept up with these things. Once in the salon, I sat in a big, leather chair in the middle of the room and sunk my feet into a small tub of hot water. When I looked around the room, I had never been so aware of myself. I was the only white person in the salon.
She told me about the story one of her sons died by falling off of the building while they were building it, as we looked at pictures of her great-grandkids. Once we got her dressed up to Siobhan and Amber took her out to breakfast. While I went to room three in bed two. Helping my resident decorate her tree not long before we left. As we sat in the conference room and talked about that nurse everybody pretty much said the same thing.
The first day there we spent getting to know our host. She was an old, Nicaraguan lady who always had flour on her dress. She made us feel so welcome in her home as we got situated. Her house was like a quilt. As her family grew, her husband had added on new rooms and extensions to the once small house.
She loved having people over to see her, since she lived in the nursing home. I still remember how, on my christmas list to “Santa” number 1 on the list was to go see my great great grandma Knott. I remember how she always had a bag of 3 musketeers, she always gave us two or even a handful every time we went and saw her. My great great grandma, was always strong. She was always positive, I still remember the day she was dieing.
I admired Mrs. Johnson, Cindy’s mom. When I would visit Cindy, She would politely say, “Chelsea,” relaxes, you are at home. Mrs. Johnson invited me over to dinner all the time during the holiday season. She cooked some of the best corn bread I ever tasted. The parade
To me it was hot, smelly and crowded, but it felt like home to Bailey. She had always thought that the fair had always smelled sweet like funnel cakes and hay. Finally, after waiting for a while the results were in. Bailey had placed first in the fair for her cookies. Not only did she get first, but she also got second in show, coming in close to a plate of sugar cookies.

Two of my four grandparents, both of my grandpas, passed away before I was born. My mom’s mom passed a few weeks before Katrina and my dad’s mom passed away this past about a year ago during winter break. My family issues, I believe, have shaped me to be able to deal with sorrow and regret. Even though my life isn’t always perfect, I still have many hobbies and interests.

Since joining the NHS I have developed a great appreciation for everything going on around me. From holding the door for someone or simply greeting other in the hallways, I believe that the NHS has helped me develop a open and giving personality that has a positive impact on everyone I come into contact with. There are many things that come to mind when I think of how my character has changed, but there is a certain one that really sticks out. That example is this year when the NHS was serving cookies for Valentine’s Day and we had a bunch of leftover cookies. I asked Mr. Spears what we were going to do with the leftover cookies and he thought we could just hand them out during lunch.
