Education has always been an important foundation upon which I build my goals and dreams. For as long as I can remember, science has always been a passion of mine, and nursing in particular has interested me for some time. Dedicating my life to assisting and improving the lives of others is very appealing to me. However, without education I would not be able to achieve my greatest ambition, which is becoming a nurse practitioner.
Attending the nursing program here at Westchester Community College has been one of my best life experiences and it is a great opportunity for which I am very thankful. Studying in a foreign country has been often challenging, especially being away from my family and also because English is my second language. However, this experience has made me stronger and more confident. It also gave me an opportunity to learn about myself, expand my horizons, and appreciate everything the world has to offer.
