On my birthday, I received a phone call stating I was one of the first recipients of the Helene Fuld Nursing Innovation Scholarship at Arizona State University! When you enter the College of Nursing, there is a plaque with my name on it. It acts as a reminder to me that mediocrity is unacceptable. Be great!
I recall sitting for the panel interview with sweaty palms in the presence of mighty women. They were highly educated, confident but yet approachable and kind. I will always remember and be humbled at their faith in me to be great also.
