She had tubes coming out from her arms, her nose, and mouth. The machines behind her made noise and had lines displayed on multiple screens. I clearly remember the scene. More importantly, I remember the feeling of helplessness and sadness deep within my chest. To the left of my mother was a tall woman in white. She was changing bags full of colored fluid. At that moment, I knew that I would be that woman. Later, I learned that nurse was taking care of my mother. From the age of eight, I knew that caring for people would be my profession. My goal is simple. I care for people.”
