The year 2016 <3 - December 27th 2015, 11:45 AM

The year 2015 was pretty messed up for me. My depression and anxiety resurfaced, school is trying to kick my ass, I got sick three times in two months from stress, a huge support I had left... Then came back. But! I feel like his coming back brought so many exciting things in my life, I feel like I can achieve my goals with his encouragement and support! I have a few big goals for the year 2016 and it's looking bright!!

Goal #1
I'm so lucky to live 10 minutes from well known OHSU. Their latest non medical agenda is pushing for diversity in both the school and hospital. Their diversity and inclusion program emailed me to apply for the CURE program. This is an 8 week long PAID internship! I get a mentor and I get to research in a lab for the span of the internship. At the end I make a big poster and present it to doctors and other staff at OHSU and get a $3000 stipend! I have a great chance at being chosen because a friend of mine did it and let's just say my resume is a lot better than her lol.

Goal #2
I really want to be a nurse! And I really want some kind of experience. But then I really want to go abroad and do some kind of work or get experience. So I found Gap Medics!!! Gap Medics allows high school and undergrad students to shadow in a hospital abroad for 5 hours a day and learn about global health. Their are five different disciplines and they have NURSING! They have a great program in Tanzania that allows me to volunteer in an orphanage, too. I'll be doing this next August.

Goal #3
I really want to get into San Diego State University and UCLA. So I'm building the crap out of my resume volunteering and taking college classes. This goal is for sure my top top top goal. To do this, I'm taking college classes and volunteering. Currently I have 17 credits and when Winter Term ends I'll have 30. My goal is 45 when I graduate! (I'm a junior now).

Those are amazing goals and you seem passionate and committed to those goals, so I believe you can reach them.

Will you keep us updated on how it all goes for you throughout the year? I really want to know how it turns out because it sounds promising and exciting. Wishing you the best of luck. I am glad you have support and encouragement.
