I am a domestic violence survivor (I was shoved out a second story window and run over by a Ford F-150 Pickup), I am a recovering addict of 7 years, and I was homeless for two years. I can only thik that God has something important for me to do. I have also raised six healthy and well adjusted kids. I was a Certified Nursing Assistant for 20 years. I specialized in Alzheimer and Parkinson's patients. I run support groups for Domestic violence survivor's and recovering addicts. My dream is to become a Healthcare Administrator working to make a positive difference in the lives of those who reside in Long Term Care Facilities. I raise money every year for the Alzheimer Memory Walk and for the Michael J. Fox Center for Parkinson's Research. I am on disability due to a back injury and earning my Bachelor's degree in my chosen field will let me continue to effect positive change in a field I love without the lifting necessary as a CNA. I barely have the money to live but I will not give up on my dreams. Even if that means I have to scrape the money together for one class at a time. I have overcome every obstacle and will do all I can to overcome this one as well. I also want my kids to see that you can overcome any adversity and come out a winner and to do good in this world.
