UConn School of Nursing
I am a sophomore undergraduate nursing student from Houston, Texas. This large and diverse city, which I call home, has provided me with a passion for helping the underserved, and a desire to see the community changed for the better. As a result, I want to work as community health nurse to serve neglected communities, in particular the homeless.
Through my volunteer work at Healthcare for the Homeless Houston and through UConn’s Community Outreach Homelessness Project, I hope to add an additional perspective and passion to the overwhelmingly talented group of UST Scholars. Through UST, I hope to gain knowledge and experience with and from my fellow UST peers, while serving the surrounding Connecticut communities.
