Self-Assessment:What do you do well? I am very neat and organized. I love to help others and compassionate. I am driven, determined, optimistic, bright, intelligent, artistic, and a problem solver.What energizes you? I want so badly not to be a stereotypical young mother who depends and survives off the government to take care of my family and me. A lot of females I grew up with have a few kids, butnone of them has the courage or driven enough to get their degrees to better themselves or their families. So, I started as a student, and then I became a mother young. I told myself when I felt ready to go back to school to do it and don’t stop until I’m completed. The feeling that I am so close to the finish line is what motivates me to continue to push ahead, even with all my obstacles holding me down. I make small efforts daily, and I feel one step closer to the end.If you knew you could not fail, what would you do? If I could not fail, I would want to be a surgent or a mortician. When I was about thirteen years old, my mom had a friend who went to Howard University Medical School. One day she took me there, and I was astonished by all the corpses I saw, and I was not disguised about it. I was curious about it all. I started to come so much they would show me things only students and doctors would see. It was a blessing to be with a professor who allowed me to open someone's head, and I help extract their brain. Still to this day making it seventeen years and I always remember. She was amazed that I wasn’t grossed out. She would have me separate nerves from the muscles, and she would show me the process of preserving organs in jars. So, because of that woman, I grew an interest in health and hospitals.
