In the beginning it was really, really difficult, but as I came out of my shell, I found support in reaching out to people on campus and building relationships. I joined in group texts, chats about homework and labs, and carpooled to clinicals at the local hospital. Although all of us in the nursing program had different struggles, we learned to support each other. That’s what carried me through: I met people who made me believe in myself.
