At age 15 my time was spent taking care of my father, when all other youth my age was going to parties and movies. I learned at an early age the importance of adding value to other peoples life. I could be found reading the bible to my father, praying with him, and helping to care for him. At the age of 15 is when I developed a passion for caring for the sick, serving others, and adding values to others life.
