My passion is to become a neonatal nurse.
This became my passion because I really like taking care of babies, and I would love to be a part of a baby's first day, especially showing the the mother how to breastfeed and take care of her first child. When my mom was pregnant before she had me, she ended up losing the baby. This further inspired me to become a neonatal nurse because I want save babies' lives and be with them when they are born.
I will develop my passion by attending NSLC Medicine & Healthcare because I would develop a better understanding of what a neonatal nurse does. I also would develop my passion towards this career by making connections with people with similar interests.
"Reyna is the perfect candidate for NSLC Medicine & Healthcare because when she sets a goal, she does everything in her power to make it happen. She is excited about the possibility of discussing math and science related material to further solidify her passion of wanting to work with premature babies. Reyna is an exemplary student who is very focused, pays close attention to detail, and is able to communicate very clearly both in English and Spanish. I believe Reyna will be a great addition to this program as a Latina student from East Oakland, CA."
For the great opportunity I had to join the NSLC program. I met wonderful people who actually cared about my future. I met really great people that showed us great things. One of the experiments we did that I found really interesting was that we were suturing a chicken breast. Also I enjoyed our little groups we had because we got close to people we barely met and we made really great friends in just a few days. I learned many things from this program. I also like all of our trips to San Francisco. One of my favorite trips were when we went to the general hospital in San Francisco, we did different activities. For example, we took the blood pressure from our peers and also we did CPR on baby models. Overall this was an amazing experience!

NSLC Medicine & Healthcare will help me with my school by learning new things. It will also help me a lot in growing up and being able to contribute with others. I chose this program because I really like things that have to do with medical care. I find medical care really interesting because we go beyond the basic learning of a human body. I would like to work in the labor and delivery because I have a lot of interest of taking care of a new born babies and their mothers.
This program will also help me with college because I will have a better understanding of how it works. I will be one hundred percent more confident in what direction to take towards school. I'm looking forward to learning new things and being able to communicate with people.
