The Beginning

"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven" - Ecclesiastes. I believe that every righteous desire that we have, will one day be fulfilled. I have finally started the fulfillment of my dream to be in the medical field. My journey in medicine has commenced when I enrolled in the Medical Assisting program of Carrington College in February of this year. I grew up in a family that loves learning and views education as greater than any thing in the world. My Dad used to tell us that, "Education is the greatest legacy I could give you. I am poor as to things of the world. But, education is something that nobody can steal from you", he added. He has worked hard for us to help us in every step of the way to grow in wisdom and knowledge, temporally and spiritually.

After going to college for a year, I decided to serve a full-time mission for our church. This has changed my life forever. I remember, my drawing of a ladder that have my goals in life.

1. Seminary and Institute
2. College
3. Mission
4. Work
5. Temple Marriage

Although, I did not finish the degree I was pursuing in college before my mission, I attest that God moves in mysterious ways. I knew what I wanted. I understood what the Lord wants me to prioritize.

Now, it has been 10 years since I married Kevron and we have 3 active children. They are my greatest source of inspiration and courage. They are my life! I am grateful and feels so blessed for the help and support of my beloved Husband carrying out my goal. And, I am humbled to witness the tender mercies of the Lord in my/our life as I/we exercise my/our faith to help me finish the course...and I/we did triumphantly!




"Whatever principle of intelligence we attain unto in this life, it will rise with us in the resurrection. And if a person gains more knowledge and intelligence in this life through his diligence and obedience than another, he will have so much the advantage in the world to come."
Doctrine and Covenants 130:18-19



I got a silver cord for being a Dean's Lister
