There are many professions that do not require the heart of the professional; nursing is not one of these careers. Being a nurse is a commitment to oneself, the multi-disciplinary team and the community to provide excellent patient outcomes. A nurse invests time, talent, and energy into the art and science of nursing, with the ultimate goal of promoting health in all individuals. A quick mind, strong body, and compassionate heart are innate qualities of a devoted and caring nurse. If this is what your goal is, I highly recommend attending FAU. Although I am young in years, I have overcome obstacles in my life that have authenticated my passion and my calling for nursing. As a young child, I lost my mother to drug addiction and my father to cancer and have endured the impact these adversities have made on me and my family. The Christine E. Lynne College of Nursing supported my hardships and I truly felt that my professors cared. In a society where both natural and accidental causes claim the lives of thousands of people each and every day, I can offer raw empathy and education to promote health in the community. This is because of the education I received at FAU. I am committed to using the knowledge I gained while in this program to become a leader that is the voice of those who cannot be heard within the community and globally. I appreciate your consideration for this scholarship. Sincerely, Kareli A. Lugo, RN, BSN
