Write an essay where you tell us about what inspired you to pursue a nursing degree.
After graduating High School with Honors - top 10% of my class - back in 1998, as a proud Florida Bright Futures full scholarship recipient, I had the dream to become a doctor. This dream was shattered - as I was not able to attend college because of my legal status.
Twenty-one years later, as a full time employee and proud mother of three children - Nicholas, in his second year of college; Christopher, in High School; and Natalia, in elementary school - I am now able to continue my career path and achieve my life-long goal. I enrolled in college January 2019, currently working on an Associate Degree in Science online, to then transfer to a campus next year once accepted in Nursing School. This scholarship will help me achieve my goal without affecting my family's financial needs.
