My name is Roxanna Leura and I am a first-generation college student. Growing up my parents fostered children, we had over 80 kids in a span of 3 years. One of which changed my life forever. His name was Zach. Zach was two years old and his stepfather had thrown a beer bottle at his face and left him in the middle of the desert. Zach has a scar from the front of his head to the back and suffered from seizures. I was ten years old at the time and would care for Zach. I helped change his bandages and diapers. I was taught how to spot seizures and learned what to do. Zach was my first patient and taught me what compassion was. I knew ever since I went to his first doctor's visit to have his stitches removed that I wanted to help. I knew I wanted to be a nurse. I am now in Nursing school and just finished block 1.

Hello, my name is Madison Story, I am a 17 year old senior at Oak Hills High School. l am hoping to pursue a career in nursing at The University of Alabama. This has been my dream school since I was very little, but now as I am getting older, I realize I can not afford it. I am currently working two jobs, ASB President, Sports Medicine President, and potential Valedictorian. , I am hoping to go into Oncology once I get my degree because almost 3 years ago, my grandma died of lung cancer. This has given me the passion to want to help people that will be going through the same thing that her and my family did.

Ever since I was young I always tried to take care of others when injured, the uplifting feeling of accomplishment of making others pain go away was always my goal. Nursing has always been my dream job and my studies to start my healthcare career started at a young age; in my junior year of high school, I accomplished the tedious task of obtaining my CNA license with the Vincennes University program while finishing the PLTW programs my senior year. Understanding the workings of the human body while not only providing care is an art form that is something I want to achieve at Indiana University. chemistry was a struggle for me during my sophomore year being distracted by grief but I recognized that in order to get to where I need to go I need to focus and ask for help where ever I can, spending late nights studying significant figures became my new routine that eventually paid off. My true passion came from the heartbreaking death of my close friend, seeing her struggle with cervical cancer started a frenzy of research on how to cure her and how to prevent the pain. I watched the nurses work together to help her as a team while making her smile till her departure; I want to create comfort to those in the roughest times to remind them that they are in good hands.

I am a single mother, and I am pursuing a Degree in Nursing. I want to become a nurse researcher in Cancer. However, it is so challenging for me to work full time and attend school full time. This scholarship might help me work part-time and focus on my studies.

Silvia Williams  on 4/7/2020 12:18:30 PM

I am a 60 year old Registered Medical Assistant. I work in Surgical Oncology and I was enrolled in college to obtain my RN/BSN when I was told that I could not complete my degree because I had hit my financial aid ceiling. I am truly committed to becoming a nurse in the field of oncology because I am committed to this. I love working in that field and I know it takes a very special kind of person to be able to handle the highs and low it brings. Please help me to be able to complete my degree so that I can continue to help . This scholarship can really make a difference not only in my life but in the lives of countless others I can help. I see the nurses on the front lines of the Pandemic and I want to do my part helping on the front lines as well. I know that I can be a great contribution in the fight against this horrific invisible enemy we now face. Thank you......
