Hello!! I'm currently working as a CNA at a nursing home. I love all my residents and I am finding out that most of them know my family. It's exciting to hear all of their stories and relive their memories. We have 29 residents and we just lost one. It broke my heart and I couldn't stop the tears. My family has a history of dementia and alzheimer's. My mother has seizures, migraines and fibromyalgia. I'm wanting to major in Neuroscience to help my family. This scholarship would help my achieve my goals.
