1) Why did you decide to go into nursing?
I decided to go into nursing because it amalgamates my loves of the art and science of the human body, as well as the fostering of social justice and community. In my previous degree, I focused on health psychology because I always had a wonderment towards the human body, its function and brilliance. However, it was only after my mom was sick and I became a full-time caregiver that I truly explored the thought of nursing. After being in this program, I cannot help but be excited for the amazing, but challenging work ahead as a RN.
2) Fun Fact:
A fun fact about me is I have a massive adoration for cows - they are my favourite animal. I also like to create sculptures in my spare time when I'm not swamped with school!
