Dear Black Girl ,

YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL & POWERFUL !

Love yourself ! Care for yourself ! Spoil yourself ! Appreciate yourself ! Uplift yourself !

If you do any of these things then you are on to a great start. Now since you know what to do let us spread the word to other black queens who may not have the same courage and confidence as others.

Make sure wherever you go you spread love and positivity! Color appreciation? Transfer your good vibes and spirit to family , friends , coworkers or even a stranger. Teach others the importance of feeling good about themselves we all need to feel ” cocky ” once in awhile. For those who base their beauty from society and social media repeat ” I AM BEAUTIFUL , I AM FIERCE , I AM ME “. When you walk in sun you sparkle, and shine pure melanin do not let anyone stop your glow , your freedom or from being yourself.

Love life , love yourself , love your skin and most importantly love BEING A BLACK GIRL

Why I Chose Nursing …

Ever since I was a child I have always been interested in helping people and making a difference. Whether it be simple talks , friendship or even cleaning up a scrap you got after falling down I was the one to call on. I grew up with many nurses and doctors in my family so I began to learn about the ” medical field ” at a very young age so by the time I got to high school I already had my mind set. My first medical experience was in high school during a program called ” VO-TECH ” where I got to chose a career and get experience and education. I chose the medical field and started off as a CNA where I learned and performed all the duties while also working my 4 years of high school. After graduating high school in 2015 I became certified as a CNA and was able to work hands on in that specific job field while entering college.

Freshman year of college I changed my direction from CNA to RN where I began falling in love with the duties and lifestyle of a Pediatric Oncologist ( doctor who specializes in research and treatment for cancers that develop in infants, toddlers , adolescents and teenagers ). While attending college I then completed all my nursing pre-requisites in a 2 year program so therefore I could graduate early and began nursing school. NOW the year of 2019 I am officially a nursing student and 1 year away from pursuing my dream career as a Pediatric Oncologist!
