Write an essay where you tell us about what drives you in your pursuit of your graduate degree.

Have you ever been told "I wan't you to be better than me" by a parent or guardian? Well I have, by my mom. As a child I have watched my mom struggle but she has always overcame her hardships. One thing she has always done was push me to be the best at everything. I would be the first to have ever went to college. So, trying to obtain a degree in nursing is very big for my family. I wan't to be able to give back to my mom because she has done everything for me. I also love helping children and women so, a nursing job dealing with pediatrics or women health would be good for me. In conclusion my mom is my inspiration and I know this was short but I kept it straight to the point.
