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.
In the Fall 2018, I plan to attend the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. My educational aspirations consist of acquiring a bachelor’s degree in Middle School Education that would assist me becoming a teacher. I would like to teach 4th-8th grade, because I believe that those years of education is very crucial for learning and developing skills. During those years of my life, I became serious about my education and understood the value of education.
My dream is to be a math teacher; it’s one of my favorite subjects. I not only want to be a teacher I want to be a “good” teacher. I want to make a difference in the life of every child I came in contact with. In order for me to do that I have created a list of goals to help me stay focused throughout my entire teaching career. At some point, I may move outside of the classroom into a position that will allow me to serve as a math coach or a specialist for a school. I know being a teacher comes with many challenges, but it also a profession that brings great satisfaction. [Read more…]
