I was very much attracted to the Holstee Manifesto poster for a simple yet powerful reason; the script accurately portrays how I feel about life. Two phrases in the Manifesto that resonate with me the most are “Life is about the people you meet, and the things you create with them” and “Live your dream and share your passion.” Each sentence acts as an inspirational reminder of the way I envision the art of living a good life.

I am currently 21 years of age. I am a registered nurse working with elderly residents in a personal care facility. I have my Associate’s Degree in nursing, and I will graduate with a Bachelor’s Degree in nursing this May. After graduation, I plan to enter a post-baccalaureate pre-medical program. Thereafter, I plan to enter medical school to become a doctor and specialize as an Anesthesiologist. I hope to use my skills to make a positive impact on others and help those I encounter breathe a little bit easier. This has been my life-long dream.

I am a man of hopes and dreams. I am passionate and persistent. I am optimistic and always try to look on the bright side of life. Never give up. You learn from your mistakes, so always seek to improve yourself. I believe Life is a progression of decisions which meanders through endless opportunity. Life is what you make it, so cherish the little things but aim for the stars.

The Holstee Manifesto poster sits on my bedroom wall as a constant reminder and inspiration to live every moment to the fullest in this wild but wonderful adventure known as life.
