Our Scholars
I want to be a nurse because I want to help others stay healthy. In my community. I see too many people die simply because they do not know how to take care of themselves. I am in my final year of Nursing College and I am working as a Health Teacher at the FICCS Women's Center. I can now give back to the girls in my community all the things I have learned in school. I have helped deliver babies and I even had a chance to work with Dr. Patel in the theater doing surgeries.
