I want to be a nurse
I want to be a nurse. I’ve always known I want to work in the medical field. This year, in July, my grandfather passed away. That’s the second grandfather I had that passed away from cancer. One of my aunts has had cancer. My cousin was really affected heavily by leukemia. So, cancer just affects my family. All of my aunts—a lot of them are nurses, so pediatric oncology is something that I’ve really become interested in, especially in the past few months. I’ve always wanted to be in the medical field and I’ve always wanted to work with kids. I feel like I can help so many people and I can help the families, too. Having a good support system is part of being a nurse. I think I can be good at it.
