My Arrival

I arrived in the United States in October of 1967 and was welcomed by the Blake-Reid family. There were four sisters and two brothers. I will always be indebted to this family as they helped me adjust to the new environment and culture. I was fascinated by the stories told by the sisters of their experiences in this country but more so taken by their frequent travels. I have always had an inquisitive mind and was interested in visiting some of these countries that I studied in school or heard about from friends. After working in the corporate world for a while I decided to follow my dreams of becoming a nurse and pursued the process for acceptance in a nursing program. After being accepted to Kings County School of Nursing, I decided to take my first vacation since I would not be able to do so for the next two and half years and possibly more, as I would not earn a vacation for at least a year after securing my first nursing job.
