Hello, my name is Karla Q and I am majoring in nursing. The reason that I want this scholarship is because I've already seen my parents struggle enough for me and my life and I do not want to see that no more. They have always been working hard for me and my family. I have been wanting to major in nursing to become a OBGYN. Ever since I was in fifth grade I knew that I wanted to become an OBGYN. Knowing that I will be helping women and being there for when a women gives worth is something that I want to help in and major in. I am currently finishing my internship for my Medical Assisting Certificate and plan to keep on studying.
