Which door would you choose? Beautiful or Average? Dove has a commercial in which two doors are labeled with the words beautiful and average and anyone entering the doors had to decide which door they would enter.

The Elephant in the Room–the topic that’s often avoided, but absolutely necessary to discuss–Domestic Violence. “Nearly 1.5 million high school students in the United States are physically abused by dating partners every year” (National Coalition Against Domestic Violence).

When we hear the words “They Said…,” our typical first response is “Who said…?” Yet, nobody actually knows who the “they” are that’s being referred to in the conversation.

First and foremost, I want to say thank you to Dr. Debro for choosing me to be the recipient of the 2019 Love Yourself to Life ™ Nursing Scholarship. Committing to the 28 day Love Yourself to Life ™ commitment was a blessing in itself. The daily participation has helped me to become a stronger woman.
Being the recipient of this scholarship is a huge blessing to me and it could not have come at a better time. I feel God has truly blessed me with having Dr. Debro as my former teacher and He has given me faith to believe. Because of all of this: continuing to pursue my dream of becoming a nurse, becoming committed to myself, and continuing to pray, I have gained the biggest reward and that is learning how to Love Myself to Life.
Upon graduation of the nursing program, my goal is to pass the NCLEX exam. After successfully passing the exam, I hope to gain experience, as a floor nurse with visions of advancement to become a charge nurse or manager. Concurrently, while I work to gain experience, I plan to continue my education. I have plans to start working towards my Bachelor’s degree in Nursing immediately with my dream goal of becoming a Nurse Practitioner.
