Why I need the iSTEPup Foundation
Hello! My name is Aminata – I am a SECHN at Masanga Hospital.
I have a big family and support both my parents and four step mothers. I also have seven brothers and eleven sisters and lots of live together but I am the only one who is working. I am also a single mother to my son.
I really want to do SRN (the higher nursing degree) because it is a high level of education and is the high nursing standard both at home and abroad. It also has higher skills and more learning and ideas which I want to gain. I will also be able to support my family with this as it is very hard to do this in Sierra Leone without this learning. It would not be possible for me to do this as it is very expensive to do this without help. I worked very hard to achieve my SECHN and I use my learning every day and look forward to my studies.
