My nursing journey began after my aunt was diagnosed with uterine cancer in 2001. Within months the cancer had metastasized throughout her body. I felt helpless as I watched her health begin to decline. Before she became ill, she had pursued a career as a school teacher. At her funeral, I listened to stories from former students about how she impacted their lives. At that time I realized that I also wanted to pursue a career involved with helping individuals. I decided nursing was the best route because it was something that interested me and it would positively impact the lives of others. My family played a major role in the successful completion of my diploma in nursing. Their love and support allowed me to pursue my studies with
Throughout high school, I continuously explored a wide variety of courses in an attempt to figure out what career path I may want to pursue. As senior year drew closer, the business field became more enticing. Furthermore, my aspirations were significantly impacted on the evening of September 14, 2016. I woke up that day and left for school as if it were any other day. After school, I drove to the softball field because we had a game and it just so happened to be Senior Night: the last home game. When it came time for my first at bat, I stepped up to the plate and hit a line drive between the first and second basemen, successfully making it to first base. The next player up to bat hit a double; I rounded second and sprinted for third. I clearly remember my coach kneeling on the ground to signal me to slide into third base. For some unknown reason, I hesitated and slid too late. I knew it was a bad slide, but I was focusing on whether or not I was safe. Then reality set in, I was safe, but I was not physically capable of standing up.
Many people have left legacies from when they were alive. Some are good, and some are bad. Those people may not agree with what they have left behind, and some may be perfectly okay with theirs. For me, I would like to leave behind a legacy that shows my family that I was a good person. I would want them to know that I had good intentions for my life and that I wanted to do good for myself and others. In this essay, I will explain what I would like my legacy to be like.
This year my youth group went on another mission trip. We went to Copperhill Tennessee the same place we went last year. Everyone expected everything to be the same as last year but everything was different this time. There were very many problems this time.
Life is no different than the weather. Not only is it unpredictable, but it shows us a new perspective of the world every day. Since I started working in the Emergency Department at Pinnacle Health I have seen 10 cardiac arrests and 10 deaths; never once has a patient lived, until recently.
We went to this place where there was a horrible storm. I don’t remember what place it was and what storm that they had, but there village was destroyed. But when I got there I started to get cry, because I saw all of there houses and everything destroyed. What we wanted to did was to help them. We tried to help them find there families. Whenever I saw a kid or someone find one of their family member, I start to cry. When I see one of the kids, adults, teen don’t find their family's, I hug them as long as they want me to; till they stop crying then I would stop crying. But sometimes they don't stop crying then I wont stop crying. But either way I would always have that feeling in my
I have attended to alternate spring break mission trips in 10th grade and 11th. Sophomore year I attended the mission trip in Mississippi, we helped a family that did not have the resources to fix their home. The woman who we helped was having flooding problems, so we renovated her living room. We put a wooden fence in her back yard and put pipes in her back yard to move the water that would come into her home to the street. Junior year I attended the mission trip in Kentucky, we also helped people who live in poverty and did not have the resources to make necessary improvements on their homes. We built a ramp for the elderly couple and made there door wider so the women would be able to get into her home with her wheelchair. This was very important to me because I am able t help others have things that they deserve and need but are not able to have. They are in a situation where they are not able to do these things or have the finances to do them. I also helped out at the Muskegon Catholic Central’s Fish Fry. Helping with that ever easy needed. I helped by cleaning table, working in the takeout window and whatever else was needed.
We Three Kings Daycare was the venue in which I chose to complete my field work. Luckily for me, my mom is one of the employees and so gaining access, setting up a theme, date, and time was one of the easier aspects of this project. The group, my mom, is typically responsible for ranges from 8-11 children ages six through eight. Due to the slightly older age group I was working with. I forego beginning with a song partly because I could not find anything relatable to my theme, and also because I planned on doing my story time after they had come in from playing outside. I figured outdoor play would be enough exertion to keep the jitters at bay. Gathering everyone in a circle, I introduced myself and had everyone go around and tell me their
Nigeria, 2001, I awakened startled with people screaming indiscriminately. My dad's head was bleeding profusely, and my cousin, sitting in the passenger seat was bleeding from his neck. There were shards of shattered windshield everywhere. I was in the backseat uninjured but scared. This commotion was the aftermath of a car accident involving my dad, my cousin and me, while he was driving us to school. Next, we were rushed to the hospital, however, upon arrival, we were refused treatment until we paid an admissions fee. This practice was common in my country. Although the incident was disturbing, it drove me towards a career in healthcare, mainly working with patients who have a difficulty affording their medical care.
During the course of the last three years, I have went on various mission trips. Most recently I went to Florida my church and I spent a four week giving back to small part in Panama City one day we gave out water and small snacks to anyone that needed another we picked up trash on the beach first we split up into groups then went our separate ways. finally when all the hard work was over our group celebrated having a clean environment the rest of the week went by so fast I didn’t realize how much time passed.When your meeting so many people and doing so much fun and heartwarming things, time doesn’t register. I felt we really made a difference to that community
Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step. -Martin Luther King, Jr. This quote appeals to the journey that I believe that I am beginning on to develop what’s next for me as I leave Wiley College. This Field experience has helped me to begin got map out where I want to work after I’ve met all requirements for my undergraduate degree. I had the opportunity to volunteer in the office of the Chaplain of Wiley College. The experience of ministry is something I believe you have to be equipped for while working as a campus pastor to students on a college campus.
Someone’s religious affiliations and backgrounds can be fairly diverse and complicated. My own religious background in Christianity, however, is fairly simple. My parents only played a minor role in my religious practices, but the biggest influence on that would actually be the friends that I have made while here at Iowa State University.
I believe the time of evaluation, it is a challenge that most teachers, instructors, educators have. When I was a nursing student I fervently desired to become a teacher, nevertheless I have never had the patience to sit down and teach someone, but I believe adult learners are completely different on several ways. I always wanted to have an instructor that was able to bring theory and practice together, however I didn’t get into the Educator track, not sure why. Fortunately, I never had a similar experience than the one presented but had a friend who was placed on probation and had to repeat a class. She graduated later than the group as a result of not having met the minimal requirements for one of the classes but also was not too perfect on the rest.
As a 2/C squad leader, my job is a bit different than the typical 2/C. I feel as if because I am being thrust into this leadership role, I am forced to immediately start trying to think and act like a leader and really hone those skills quickly in order to get the most out of each and every member of my squad.
Well, this question seems too big for me. I am only an average person that does not have any significant ideas to inspire, advise, or stimulate someone to change the world or make what the world would be. The only thing I want to do is I try to do my best to become a helpful person and contribute something as much as I can to the society. This is quite simple, but I have been striving a lot to achieve these goals.
