As a university student in Plano, Texas, it's very hard for me to take a break and go on a vacation. As a child, I was diagnosed with type 1 Diabetes, and this fueled my passion in the nursing field. At the time of my diagnosis, my doctor that had been my primary care physician for over 10 years misdiagnosed me as bulimic. He ordered me to be sent to the psychiatric ward at children's hospital without any blood work to back up this claim. After insisting upon this test, we found my blood sugar levels to be on the tipping point of turning deadly at 400 mg/dL. This experience made me want to help people in my position; to get people the proper care they needed and serve them more closely than their doctors. My current sophomore status at the University of Texas at Arlington is about to start, and my prior year, although taxing, has been rewarded with a position on the dean's list and multiple offers to join many honor's society. I would love to broaden my horizons on a trip to Africa.
