Nursing Training in Australia

Hi everyone... friends, family, and supporters.

It’s me, Maria. Most of you know me as a friend, mother, student, and self-employed person. But I’m actually working towards something much bigger. I am currently a student at Arapahoe Community College in the Denver area pursuing my nursing degree.

I have been selected to represent my country and school at the International Scholar Program on Nursing and Health Care in Australia. I was selected based on my exemplary leadership skills and outstanding academic performance as a member of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.

By attending this program I will join other students from around the country for an life-changing midwifery exploration career program. This will be a powerful experience, enabling me to interact with respected professionals in various fields while building relationships with students who will be my future colleagues. Attending this program will enable me to further my interest in the field of healthcare and nursing and reach my career goals of becoming a midwife. This will be a big plus, and it will give me an edge competing against other candidates while pursuing my nursing and healthcare career.

Imagine if you were given this opportunity for a life-changing experience and were unable to participate due to lack of funds. That is why I am asking your help today to make this trip possible. My participation in the program depends on whether I can raise $6,000 dollars to cover the remaining tuition balance and the rest of the costs for the program.

Please help with whatever donation you can make to help make this dream come true.

I thank you and bless you from my heart!
