CNA Royalty ?

Good Sunday afternoon to everyone! These last few weeks have been a crazy whirlwind of being accepted into my dream medical school, organizing and setting up events that I can safely attend and then becoming a certified nursing assistant! As some of you know, I have dealt with medical issues in the past and I had so many CNAs that inspired and motivated me to get better and I am so excited to start my medical career in helping, inspiring and motivating people to strive to get better as well! I was able to share my story with the class about my struggle with anorexia and advocated my platform of “Staying•HopeFull.” I also shared how important it is to be compassionate and understanding in the medical field as you never know what someone may be going through. I’ve been a patient before and now I am a medical professional and I am so excited to be able to help others with respect and compassion as I know what it’s like. I look forward to attending Grand Valley State University in the fall, continuing my education in becoming a Physician Assistant while helping others working as a CNA! I hope everyone is continuing to stay safe and much love to everyone!

  1. Congratulations on the realization of your dream. I don’t know you yet, but I am proud of you. When I was 53 I decided to attend school to become a medical assistant. I have also had medical problems, and still have a few. I was the oldest one in my class, but I absolutely adored it! I’ve always been fascinated by the medical field, and still treasure the memories of my MA education.

    I know you are going to do SO well in your chosen field. Keep you head up and your eye on the prize.

  2. Congratulations Olivia!

    That is amazing and I am so proud of you and the work that you do. Thank you for sharing your story, as well. Your story can help and inspire others who have also struggled with eating disorders. I wish you well as you further your education and follow your dreams. Keep up the good work and stay safe!

    Much Love,
