What makes a person “ideal”?
“Whenever I hear the word ideal, there is only one idea that comes to mind and that is being real. For me, a person is ideal when he/she isn’t afraid of showing to the world how he/she is and who he/she is. A person becomes ideal when he/she accepts everything about him/her without any hesitations and when he/she still continues to believe in himself/herself without any doubt.”
How do you practice faith as a Thomasian?
“I always make sure to find time during my every day (busy or not) to talk to Him and thank Him for everything that He has bestowed upon me. I dedicate everything I do to Him because I owe Him all that I use and all that I have. Lastly, being in nursing puts me in the perfect position to lead my patients/clients closer to God more than ever. I try to make them realize how great our God is that even though they may be suffering God never ceases to be with them. “
How can you promote peace in your community?
“I can promote peace in my community by being an epitome of someone who finds goodness in things because I think if we can be that kind of person we would never feel hatred towards anything. We would only end up loving and appreciating.”
Why should the Thomasian community vote for you?:
