    I have a child now.  She is five and she always tells me, 'Mom, I want to be a doctor.' So it would be nice, maybe me being a nurse and my daughter being a doctor... And it would give me the greatest joy to push my daughter to where I couldn't reach.

    You're never too old to be what you want to be. You can do whatever you plan on doing. I'm looking at Physical Therapy. My goal is to do something that makes a difference.

    If you want something, go for it. Come into EOC. They're all very helpful at getting you connected to what you want to do. I don't feel like anything is impossible anymore.

    Working as a Patient Care Technician at St. Joseph's is a great opportunity for me. In the next three years I see myself becoming a psychiatric nurse. That's where I see myself.
