Hello beautiful people, I am 24 and a survivor of a rare neuroimmune disorder. As a first generation college student, I have gone through a series of hardship that have shaped me into who I am today and I am so incredibly grateful for everything in life. I graduated last year from a renowned university in California with a bachelor’s degree in public health and transitioned into a one year competitive premedical Post Baccalaureate program which made me realize my earlier plans during high school to become a nurse practitioner never went away. Unfortunately, it just took an expensive detour to make me see and believe nursing aligns more with the core of who I am. I am highly interested in one day serving patients in neuro-rehabilitation. May I kindly ask for advice and perhaps mentorship? I would be grateful for any input. Thank you so much for reading!
