In the blink of an eye, my freshman year at Ohio State has come and gone. These past nine months in Columbus have given me the greatest opportunities and friends than I could ever imagine. Upon entering college, I truly did not know what to expect. I soon realized how independent I would become from the minute my parents waved goodbye. Setting a goal for myself at the beginning of the school year motivated me to excel not only in academics, but in community service and student organizational clubs. This led to my involvement in GHI (Global Health Initiative club), as well as two nursing clubs at Ohio State, NSPIRE and BSNA (Buckeye Student Nurses Association), where I learned from different nurses about the endless career paths and opportunities within the nursing field. Through these clubs, I had the opportunity to practice small nursing components and vitals on patients in need around the Columbus community. I look forward to continuing my involvement in all of these clubs throughout my next three years and I am excited to begin my role as a leader of BSNA as Fundraising Chair in the fall of 2019. Being a member of the Health Sciences Scholars program has greatly contributed to my success as a first year. I have found lifelong friends through this program and have been offered opportunities which have greatly influenced my desires in a future career. I look forward to the second year service project in the program next school year where I will continue to enhance and improve upon leadership, academics, and community service.

Hello! My name is Anna Robinson and I am a first year undergraduate student in the pre-nursing program at The Ohio State University. In the future, I plan to receive my BSN and continue my education to receive my MSN as a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner. I also hope to become a traveling nurse, both within and outside of the United States, and give aid to those in need. Outside of the classroom, I love to stay active, read, volunteer, and be with friends! In high school, I participated in varsity soccer, basketball, and track, and I am looking forward to being a part of intramural teams at Ohio State. I took part in leadership positions in high school, including president of my class for two years, as well as president of PALS, a peer-assisted learning system with special education students. I volunteered every week in the special education department and I plan to continue volunteering with similar organizations at Ohio State! I am so excited to join different clubs on campus, attend football games, and begin my education at the best school in the country! Go bucks!
