My interest in nursing started when two of my siblings were diagnosed with chronic kidney disease in 2014. It was a difficult time for my family, as it was the start of drastic adjustments in my household. I accompanied my siblings on many of their doctor appointments and spontaneous trips to the emergency room in the middle of the night. Witnessing my parents’ struggle with my siblings’ medical conditions was difficult. The nurses were a beacon of hope and their words and actions transformed the helplessness my parents felt into determination. Then on, I wanted to become someone who could bring ease into the lives of those who feel helpless in the face of medical calamities.
With that goal in mind, I volunteered at a refugee center that focused on educating children and providing basic health necessities for them and their families. Coming face to face with the obstacles the refugees endured, I learned the necessity of empathy, compassion, and service. During my experience at the refugee center, I supplied families with clothes and tutored children in English and Math. Additionally, I served as translator when many refugees would seek medical care. Through this experience, I was able to provide comfort and ease some of the worries these people had. Working at an urgent care, I watch the nurses communicate with the patients and induce the same sense of security and care. As a medical coder, familiar with medical terminology in addition to a Master’s in Public Health, I would be an asset to Emory’s ABSN program.
My goal is to become a Pediatric Nurse through the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing and continue to serve the underprivileged community. I aim to be like the nurses that were there in the time of despair for my family – and to educate and nurture every one of my patients. In addition, I aspire to become a nurse practitioner and I believe this program will assist me by providing me with the hands-on experience and curriculum it is nationally recognized for.
