Never give up and remember your dreams and goals are bigger than your struggles and hardships.
My ultimate career goal is:
To become a physician’s assistant or an RN.

Never give up and it is okay to be open about what you’re going through cause you never know who is going through it as well. Be supportive to everyone cause sometimes a smile means the world to someone.
