WHY I CHOSE MY program

With a passion and desire for aiding others, I knew I wanted to be in health care since high school! Becoming a registered nurse seemed a pragmatic career that suited my dynamic lifestyle, with great flexibility and scope among the nursing profession. Recently, I have acquired an interest for mental health nursing and the unique holistic approach I can bring to those living with mental illnesses. I strive to understand the human condition on a personal level. Further into my career, I hope to obtain either a master’s in nursing or entering medical school.

FUN FACTS ABOUT ME

I’m extremely passionate about photography and the unique moments one can capture. I’ve been fortunate enough to continue this passion semi-professionally throughout school.
I also love music, weightlifting and relaxing with friends!

MY BEST TIPS & ADVICE FOR STUDENTS

  • Conceptualize who you want to be and how you can become the best version of yourself!

  • Invest in your future. Spend time researching and thinking about how and where you wish to dedicate yourself.

  • Pursue a life meant for you! Don’t feel pressured by family or peers towards a certain path in life.
