I believe my calling for a career is to save lives. My mom has been a Registered Nurse my whole life, and she is the strongest person I know. She’s so incredibly smart and quick. She has always been my role model, and I would love nothing more than to be exactly like her when I grow up. I have always been able to stay extremely calm in tragic situations. My twin brother suffers from bipolar disorder and psychotic episodes. Growing up, he was always getting really upset and would take it out on people physically. I always knew how to keep him calm, and to this day I am one of the only few people that can talk him to sleep. When my sister was shot, my mom and I were the only ones out of my family keeping our cool. We didn’t want to panic until we knew there was something to panic about. I helped my mom clean up the blood where my sister was shot in her toyota carolla. That’s the day my mom knew I would make a great nurse. I did not gag, or flinch or panic. I stayed calm and got the job done. My great grandmother suffers from Altzheimer’s disease, I helped take care of her until it got too bad and she had to be placed in a nursing home.
