“I will be a first-generation college graduate. When my grandmother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and I helped care for her while I was growing up, I grew to highly respect nurses. I knew I wanted to help and care for others and a career in nursing became my ultimate dream. USCB is making this dream come true!”
