I believe I deserve this scholarship offer, because it will help me to pursue my education in the medical field. I want to become a nurse practitioner, so i could be a proud member of the community to help others out. Nurses are quiting their jobs everyday due to covid and there are many patients that need to be help and I am willing to become a nurse practitioner so i could help those patients and decrease the covid cases.
