would Like to Share with the Hero Clubhouse Members:
When I was a young girl, the times were
much different than they are today: the nursing profession was
not respected, the hospital and medical conditions were unsanitary,
and women from wealthy families were not expected to work. However,
I knew in my heart I wanted to take care of sick people. My
confidence and conviction allowed me to challenge
society's expectations and become the best person I could be.
I will be thinking about you when you FOLLOW YOUR DREAM TO BE
WHATEVER IT IS YOU WANT TO BE!
