My decision to pursue a career in nursing began in 1981, while I was living in Peru. I was accepted into the Medical School of National San Marcos University. This program taught me the basics in medicine and patient care. I attended this University for almost eight years, nearly completing my studies. Peru 's government structure had changed dramatically, causing a decline in entire country's finances, and I found it necessary to find a full-time job immediately to help support my family. I accepted a job as a legislative secretary to the National Congress of Peru, working for several congressmen for over nine years. In 1996, I moved to the United States and continued my studies as a Surgical Care Assistant at Memorial Hospital in Colorado
I cannot attribute my desire of becoming a nurse to following the footsteps of a family member, nor caring for a sick family member as I was growing up. I am a first generation high school student, furthermore, a college graduate. I became a mother at the very young age of sixteen. Being so young and growing up without the care of my parents, it was always said I, too, would end up in a rough situation and not be able to care for my child being so young myself. I continued out my days and nights being a high school teen mom. I graduated from high school in three years by attending night school while I was pregnant; allowing me to finish school sooner and obtain a better job that would allow me to take care of my son.

Why do I aspire to be a nurse? I could name a million and one reasons why I am determined to work my way up to being a Registered Nurse, but one of the main reasons is to help and comfort people in their time of need. When choosing my future profession, my family background made the decision easy. When I was seven months old, my father passed away from an accident, leaving my mother single with three children. In order to make life a little less stressful, we moved to Fresno where my grandparents lived. Unfortunately, when I was seven years old, my mother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Being the youngest of three children, I had a hard time understanding why my mom was so sick, but I did what I could to help. My two older brothers were in high school and both had jobs, which left me home with my ill mother. As a seven year old, there is only so much I could do, but I helped her bathe her, emptied her bedpan as well as her vomit pan. Almost a year after being diagnosed, she lost her battle to cancer. While my mom was in the hospital, I was able to see what an impact the nurses had

I want to become a nurse because as a baby I had many difficulties in coming to this world. From being eight months premature and breech, my mother had a hard time giving birth to me. She had to fly from the island of Kauai to Oahu to give birth to me and because I was eight months premature I almost didn't survive. I would not be here today if it weren't for the nurses at Kapiolani Medical Center who took care of me and nursed me into a healthy little baby. These nurses helped me fight for my life and when I was discharged, they gave me a little green doll that I still hold onto until this very day.

Since childhood, I have always wanted to be a nurse. Nursing comes naturally for me. It is my passion to show empathy and compassion indiscriminately. I am already in a position of providing care in the role of caregiver, but a higher education will expand my scope of practice and feed my passion to grow professionally.

"It does not matter the road you take, or how long it takes you to reach your goal, it only matter that you reach it in the end." (-Anonymous) I start my morning off with this quote daily. To me, it represents who I am on so many levels and why I want to be a nurse. I have not always wanted to pursue a nursing degree. I have always known the medical field was my passion, but I often thought I was needed in other areas. I can look back now at the paths I have gone down and can see how each path God used to show me where I truly needed to be.
