We could all benefit from a little moral support every now and then, especially in these programs here at CSU. Being in the nursing program thus far I've learned that there's not a lot i could have achieved without the help of my colleagues, who are now my closest friends. I believe that same passion to see others succeed, should be radiating through this entire campus. There is one common quality that connects all of us to each other whether we realize it or not, and that's the dire need to be successful. I want to help ignite that drive in all of us, so that wherever we go when we leave here, we can say we were supported, and that we had fans. At the end of the day, If not anyone else, I'll be your fan.
