My goals in life are quite simple yet ambitious. My ultimate goal of my education is to be a nurse. I have always had a passion for medicine my entire life and cannot wait to help people in need. I would also like to obtain my masters and doctorial degree to work my way up to becoming a nurse practitioner. However, aside from work and furthering my education, I also value the basics of life. I look forward to getting married, buying a house, appreciating time with family, having children and traveling. Life isn’t always about quantity but more so quality. If I have four cars in the driveway that means nothing unless I have a happy and healthy family that can drive in them. I don’t want a luxurious house without family and friends that can enjoy it with me. I want to wear a wedding ring because I love my (future) husband not to show my net worth. Basically, I want what everyone should want. I want to live happily and healthily and I want to see all that the world has to offer. … I was not able to get the latest and greatest technologies or go to the movies every weekend. But I had my family, and my mom always said that family is what makes your life complete. I am very dedicated to my education but my life won’t be limited to nursing. I want to be a mom and a wife and a sister that people say they are proud of. I want to be so ambitious that people follow suit. I want to make the world a better place. Yes, I want to be a nurse and eventually a doctor but that’s only the exterior. I want to be a motivator for all people in life. I want to make a difference.
I love beanies because they can keep you warm, you can still look fashionable and you can still have your hair look nice underneath! Lastly, my final favorite thing in fashion is a nice pair of sunglasses! I am a sunglass junkie. Not only do sunglasses protect your eyes from the UV rays, you can always incorporate them into any outfit during any season and have them either look casual or classy. Regardless, I think sunglasses are a great way to wrap up any outfit!
