Kamala moved to the US from Thailand in 2014 to care for her ill stepfather. After caring for many sick family members in both the U.S. and Thailand, Kamala decided she wanted to become a nurse. Now in her second year of the pre-nursing program at Mass Bay Community College, Kamala impressed her professors with her persistence and approaches to succeeding at the college level. Kamala’s goals are to complete the pre-nursing program, pass the nursing program entrance exam, and begin the program in fall 2019. Kamala is looking forward to graduating in 2020 and fulfilling her dream of working full time as a nurse.
