Here are the personal things you need to know to put in the essay:
My name is Graciela Maya but everyone including my mother calls me Gracie, unless she is mad at me then she will use my government name to mean business. I was born and raised in and around 2nd ward of Houston, Texas. I have recently started attending college and to be honest I don’t hate it as much as I used to hate high school. I started at HCC doing my basics and I am still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up, I’m 33 and still don’t know what I want to do. I am leaning towards an associates in Nursing and afterwards transferring to a university to get my bachelors’ degree, let’s hope I don’t change my mind again. Ever since I can remember I have wanted to be a nurse and I actually now work in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Texas Children’s Hospital and you know what? I kind of hate a lot of the nurses! Go figure! I mean I hate the attitude and the high school mentality some have but I do love the work they do. I think maybe because our unit is one of the highest stressed unit so perhaps that has a lot to do with it. Like I said the work these nurses do is immense and I commend them for that. The most active I am in politics is voting every 4 years
