When I was younger, I always said that I wanted to be like my grandmother. My grandmother, who is a nationally recognized Cincinnati Enquirer’s Woman of the Year, is a successful Obstetrics Gynecology Registered Nurse. I’ve taken an interest in becoming an Obstetrics Gynecology Physician, also known as an OB GYN solely because of my grandmother’s influence. During the summer, I visit my grandmother in Ohio, and she often takes me to work with her and I get to see just what the job is about. I enjoy seeing the babies in both the nursery and the Intensive Care unit (NICU) as well as observing the OB GYN’s visiting with their patients while they are in the hospital.
This is how she has been able to create all her crazy creations and has a lot more ideas to show to the public. Her sculptures are now recognized and prized by the world top collectors. When Lou first began to put beads in her abstract painting, her teachers, and
However, my favorite volunteering experience was getting to be a “Buddy for Special Olympics”. I was paired with a young girl named Kara with Down Syndrome and the biggest appreciation for life. I walked her to each of her events and cheered her on from the sideline. Even when she didn’t technically win she was so grateful for the opportunity to compete. She gave me a different outlook on life and taught me how to be grateful for every opportunity that comes my
Lauren Brooksby is Resident Assistant for 2nd floor New Heritage building 29. Not only is she a beautiful person inside out but she is also a great RA- someone that us residents greatly respect and love. Last month Lauren with other RAs and hall advisors organized a spa night for the whole building. Understanding that the residents have to deal with so much stress from midterms, she organized the program so that girls can have a fun night with friends and take care of themselves. It took Laurent and her coworkers 3 weeks to plan and organize the event.
She created an environment where we could be ourselves and where we were rewarded when we did well and pushed to be our best selves always. We also had a lot of fun. All of the girls were so sweet and talented, and I think being with Coach Jones brought us close together. Her best friend was a breast cancer survivor, so our team was called the Pink Panthers. We showed our support for breast cancer month by wearing pink jerseys, hair bows, socks, shoelaces, and sparkly monogrammed sweatpants.
Why do you believe completing a nurse residency program will be beneficial to your development as a professional nurse? I would like to start out by saying thank you for this opportunity to allow me to apply for this residency program, and I believe that this program will greatly benefit me in become a professional nurse. Ever since I was little, I witnessed my mom as a nurse in Ukraine, and saw how many people she helped over the years. I might have not understood the feeling she said she got when you know you have had an impact in someone’s life, but I remember being very proud of her. Before beginning nursing program I did a lot of research about what registered nurses do, and also did job shadowing of a registered nurse before starting
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.

Interview Narrative As soon as I got the opportunity to interview Aileen Ginez, I asked her questions about her college. Aileen Ginez is an intelligent and hardworking single mother with two sons and two daughters. Aileen is a very caring parent and has a rewarding job as a nurse.

Aileen Ginez grew up in Caloocan City, Philippines.
In the woman’s room, I worked with another volunteer that was a retired nurse. We established a great connection right away. We were even called the “dynamic duo” among the other volunteers, because we worked well and efficiently. Her (the retired nurse volunteer) outlook on life, her kindness and compassion to others was inspiring. I am lucky to have met her and learn from her.
