A couple of years went by and Ella found herself separated and she started to think about what she wanted to do with the rest of her life. Her children were aged 3 and 6 and she was single parent. She had been a graphic designer for over 10 years and felt that is was time for a career change. Having nothing to lose, Ella applied for a Bachelor of Nursing course at University. To her surprise she secured a position and was on her way to studying and being a nurse. The next three years involved Ella juggling studying with caring for her 2 kids and working part time. There were many ups and downs and there were many times when she wanted to give up. However Ella persevered and now after three years she will have finished her course this week. To top it all off, she was told today that she secured a graduate position at the very hospital that treated her daughter nearly five years ago. There were only two positions available at the hospital and she secured one of them.
I am so proud of Ella. She has worked very hard and deserves her success. I know she will make a fantastic nurse and many people will benefit from her caring nature and hard work. Ella you are an inspiration to all of us.
