My brief introduction for the essay- I am from Nepal a first-generation student in the United States. I am a first-semester nursing student. A mother of 2 young kids. My first job here in the US was a health field job as a Certified Nursing Assistant. I was unaware of my compassion and kindness towards my patients until I started working for them. I worked with amazing nurses who motivated me to advance my career in the health field. My family and friends motivated me as well to go higher.
