Introductory Assignment Name: Shelby Robin (Please answer these questions and bring to class.) 1. Write a few sentences about yourself. Well, my name is Shelby and I am a Junior at UT. I love baseball, peanut butter, black and white movies, and bookstores. My dad is my best friend in the whole world. I would like to think that I am a very driven student, and this course is my priority. I am very serious about my studies and would just like to learn as much as possible to help me become a better nurse. 2. Was there some meaningful event that influenced your decision to become a nurse? Yes, when I was twelve years old I was diagnosed with cancer. I had a rare form of bone cancer called Ewings sarcoma in my heel bone, and I had to have chemotherapy followed by the amputation of the lower half of my left leg. Through all of this the nurses were my best friends and I couldn’t have gone through it without them.
