I have always been a kind and helpful person all my life and I knew when I grew up I was going to become someone successful in the medical field. Another great benefit of getting my degree is the income. I will be making a lot more money for my children. I will be better off financially. I know it will take a lot of hard work to become successful in my career and I will experience many different things and changes in my life style as well.

Having to adjust to a new environment and to have homework again after many years off I had to manage my time more careful and more wisely. I also, had to make a schedule and that fit in perfect with not only my life but...
