      I have made my school a better place by emphasizing the importance of friendliness. For two years, I was president of a club called Anchored4Life, which focused on helping new students at our school. However, I focused on more than just showing them around. I befriended our new students and helped them find their place in our school so they could continue growing. I also worked closely with the administration of my school and was told of any students that were having a hard time and just needed a friend; I always reached out and at least tried to befriend them, even when they were not receptive to my friendliness. During this time, I saw students who were anxious and barely wanted to talk to me turn into social butterfly's laughing and enjoying themselves with their new friend groups in the hallways. Witnessing this change validated my feelings on how important friendship is and encouraged me to continuously reach out and be a friend to my peers even if they did not want to be bothered. I intend to keep up my dedication to friendliness and inclusion throughout my college career and beyond. Nursing is a tough job, and the difficulties faced during schooling and on the job can break the spirit of good people and their desire to be even better nurses. I believe my dedication to friendliness will allow my spirit to not be broken and allow me to persevere even when times are tough. You receive the energy you put out, and my friendliness will surround me with others that have similar mindsets and similar focuses on putting out positive energy. All people deserve medical professionals that are optimistic and want to do more for them than just treat them and get them out as soon as possible. I believe my dedication to being friendly while helping my patients will make them feel comfortable in healthcare settings and encourage people to not avoid hospitals. There are thousands of people every year who suffer or pass away because of the fear of going to the hospital and being judged or not given the priority they need, and I feel that the environment I will create the healthcare facilities I am employed at will help fight this problem and encourage people to get help before it is too late. A healthy environment is essential for healthcare facilities, and I know that I will bolster the health of my environments, and subsequently the people we are helping.
