I am someone who is passionate about helping people. My mother left me when I was ten years old and that experience has taught me empathy for other people. In fact, it is one of the many reasons I want to pursue a career as a Nurse Practioner. I want to help people with not only physical illnesses but mental ones as well. I am also a hardworking student. I have taken multiple AP classes and I am currently taking college classes along with my high school classes through Dual Enrollment with my local community college. I have a 4.17 GPA and I always try my hardest on all my school assignments. I am also passionate about Fitness. I go to the gym four times a week and participate in fitness classes at the YMCA. I also love equestrian riding and have participated in it since I was three years old. I am apart of many clubs at my school including NHS, Interact Club, the Pride Post, etc. Lastly, I work at Aeropostale at the outlets near my hometown. I work fifteen to twenty-five hours a week as the Elected Leader Specialist. This is why I believe I am a great candidate.
