As a freshman entering my first year of college at the University of Cincinnati, I am beyond excited to begin and explore my opportunities in a new city. As a Nursing major planning to receive my BSN, I realize hospital experience and patient interaction is a crucial step in becoming the best healthcare provider I can be. My compassionate nature to serve others has led me to the career path I am in now, and thus far all experiences of doing so has both been extremely awarding and inspiring. I plan to travel abroad, meet many peers, and actively engage in school and community events. Clubs, sports, and volunteer work are three importants essential to having a well-rounded time at this university. With my bilingual background and strong Spanish language interest, I intend to serve in largely-minority populated demographics in my career and work with diverse populations.

Punctual Hardworking On task
to 05/2014 Food Production Panera Bread – OH
In productions, m y responsibilities included making fresh sandwiches, salads, and paninis as they are ordered.
Critical qualities needed is the ability to be familiar with all of the sandwich combinations, striving for perfect accuracy in completing those orders, and doing them with efficient speed and a smile.
I was assigned this job once out of the week to be a part of the food making line.
At the end of the day after store closing hours, I restock every drawer with breakfast foods ingredients for the workers covering the next day's shift.
Likewise, I also must thoroughly clean the microwaves, soup racks, sandwich boards, panini presses, and ensure everything is clean after a day of cooking.
to 05/2014 Panera Bread – OH
Another position I held at Panera Bread was being a closing cashier for both the café and the bakery sections.
Ringing customers was an exciting opportunity for me because I was able to greet them and have small conversations about their day and their opinions about our food.
Skills I needed to possess were accuracy in entering orders, offering new promotions and options, checking them out with the correct change and pay, and being personable in remembering frequent customers and their preferences.
Because I was a closing cashier, I was in charge of counting the money in the drawer, sweeping, mopping, and deck-scrubbing the tile floor, and restocking all the cups, napkins, straws, and condiment supplies near the counter area, in ensuring they were all prepared for the cashier working the next morning.
Through my experience at Panera Bread, I learned the essence of patience with customers, treating all with warm greetings even when their response may not be positive, and actively offering to help with coworkers' tasks when they were struggling.
I believe these are all qualities that can be applied beyond a food environment into my future activities and even my nursing career.
Teacher's Assistant, 08/2012
to 06/2013 OCCS (Ohio Contemporary Chinese School) Worthington Kilbourne High School – Columbus,
I was a teacher's assistant at OCCS, a weekly held school specifically for the purpose of teaching Chinese and other core classes.
Being a graduate of OCCS of the highest level of Chinese a year prior, I was given the opportunity to help a teacher with two of her Chinese classes targeted for students ages 6 to 10.
Tasks I was assigned included taking attendance, grading their weekly homework, grading and logging exam scores, classroom setup and cleanup, and any help to students when the teacher was teaching or not available.
I managed all statistics and progress of each student online, from which the students' parents accessed to receive information.
Critical skills needed included being bilingual (as many students could not communicate very effectively in English, while others conversely, Chinese), rapid grading and proofing due to the large class size with the limited time, and organization to maintain every student's information was accurately being entered.
My consistent attendance was vital because my absence would result in an inundating amount of tasks for the teacher.
Through this job, I learned the main difficulty of it was the level range and variety of Chinese speaking and writing skill the children possessed.
The class could not always be referred to as a whole; special considerations and instructions had to be included for some students.
I realize wherever I may go, there will always be differences of recovery, communication, and cooperativity in the patients I am helping and it is vital that I keep that notion constant.

Dublin Methodist Hospital I have over two years of volunteer experience at my local hospital, where I completed various tasks designated for youth who were interested in service engagement. Responsibilities I held included being a navigator for patients searching for rooms, working in aromatherapy to provide a better stay and recovery for patients, and spontaneous miscellaneous tasks such as being a greeter and working in the gift shop. The environment was always friendly and warm, and I am grateful to have contributed to the growth of a new hospital by being able to interact with people who were suffering through difficult times and lend support to them with service and smiles.
