I'm a full time nursing student, making straight A's. In order to move on with my education, I need to come up with the rest of my tuition, or else my school will drop me. I work part time on top of my full time school schedule, but working few hours doesn't provide enough for me to pay for my living expenses and tuition.
Nursing has always been something I wanted to pursue but, after highschool I ended up pursuing art, because I thought working in the medical field would hinder my creativity and put me in a depressing work environment. After working the past 10 years as a makeup artist and feeling unfulfilled, I decided to strive for something more meaningful, and have found my purpose in nursing school. Originally I wanted to work in plastic surgery But, I recently found out that I am a match for a stranger who needs a bone marrow transplant, and through this journey of becoming a bone marrow donor I have gained more interest in oncology nursing and helping those who are terminally ill. I have yet to fully decide which area of nursing I will go into, but I'm still in school, and will gain experience in all aspects of nursing throughout my clinical work. I just need the help raising the money to cover my tuition so that I can move forward in my program.
I believe in paying it forward and doing good, and will use this money to further my education so that I am able to become a nurse & help others in need.
