Since I can remember, I have always had an interest in the medical field. I love helping others in need, so it made sense to put those loves together and pursue a nursing career.

I chose GTCC because of the reputation the school has for its nursing program. I researched several other community colleges in the area and was also accepted into other nursing programs. I chose GTCC because of the sense of community I feel when I’m there.

Career aspirations: I plan to continue my education to obtain my bachelor’s degree and continue on for my master’s degree. I would love to get into either research or teaching.

If I had the opportunity to thank the donor who helped me pursue my education, I would say …

I would say not only has this helped me pursue an education that I have always longed for, but has inspired my 11 and 13 year daughters to take their education seriously NOW. … Thank you so much. It’s changed more than just one life; it’s changed a whole family.
