As an immigrant the past 10 years, I've taken care of my kids and family. During the pandemic, I participated in several ESL programs and prerequisites for the healthcare program at NVCC. Now, I am a student in the Occupational Therapy Assistant program at NVCC. After completing this program in May 2023, I will provide therapy to patients to recover, improve, and maintain the skills needed for daily living and working independently. It is challenging to balance both studies with a lack of English skills and parenting. However, the Women's Club of Great Falls Scholarship was one of the great motivations to achieve my goal.
