People that i admire the most are those who dedicated their life in serving others no matter what their stations. And one of them is Florence Nightingale. She was born into a rich, upper-class, well-connected British family and yet she was able to reach out and cared for the poor and indigent people. Eventhough she was discouraged by her parents, she commited herself into nursing. During her time, the role of a woman was to become a wife and a mother. And nursing on those days was a career with a poor reputation, in fact, it was equally likely to function as a cook. But this didn't stop Florence Nightingale in entering nursing even if it brings anger and distress to her family, particularly her mother.Florence Nightingale's lasting contribution has been her role in founding the modern nursing profession, setting an example of compassion, commitment to patient care, and diligent and thoughtful hospital administration.

Eversince i was a kid, my dream was to become a doctor. I want to be able to help those people who has illness and who are sick. I know it is a big dream, and being born into a poor family, it is impossible for me to achieve this dream. But being poor didnt stop me to dream even if i have to start from scratch. My dream helps me to strive harder in my studies and use every opportunity i can get to reaching my goal. And being compassionate to others is a key in fulfilling my dream. That is why i entered the nursing career, not only for monetary benefits but for a reason that serving others gives me happiness that is priceless
