At the gardens this week, I talked to Janett Moctezuma. She is a fifth year and is a health science major. She’s graduating next semester and she’s currently applying for nursing school. Her ultimate career goal is to become a pediatric nurse practitioner. She is a secretary for the health science student association and a member of Eta Sigma Gamma, which is a national honor society. Not only is she an active member of two clubs, but she also works two jobs. She is a student assistant at CSULB’s human development department and a caregiver for Cambrian Homecare. She has three dogs and loves the color pink. She was born in the same city as I was, Anaheim, but has lived in Compton. When asked if she would support her child in pursuing an art career, she said yes she definitely would. She said she believed that people should pursue a career in what they are most passionate about because that’s what they’ll enjoy. If her child loves the art field, she’s going to motivate her child to be great and successful. She wouldn’t want to persuade her child to pursue a career in something they don’t want to do.
