“… you are truly helping me get to where I want to be and taking a bit of stress off my shoulders, which I am so fortunate for. This is my fourth year at San Francisco State University and I am studying Nursing with hopes of becoming a RN one day or possibly a Physician’s Assistant. I am currently working at an Assisted living home in San Leandro which I truly enjoy because I get to not only gain experience but to meet and interact with different people from different backgrounds and ethnicities. When I am not working I am a volunteer at Washington Hospital in Fremont. When I volunteer at the hospital I help discharge patients, make deliveries, answer phone calls and help family members find their loved ones. It is my dream to finish college and start a career that I know will be truly rewarding and that I will love. I want to not only make my family proud but I want to be proud of myself for the achievements that I am going to accomplish…”
