1. To give care and help those who are sick and can't care for themselves.

I'm originally from North Carolina, Currituck to be exact. I grew up on the Currituck sound where at a young age I came down with many health problems and struggled with them up until my late teen's.

Making them feel like they are still human and being able to put a smile on their face is a amazing gift to not only give someone but also for myself.

My determination, character and ambition is what get's me to
