Nakisha Thomas' Summary

I am a very ambitious and intellectual woman that is not afraid to have it all. I'm always trying to be a better me and being a better me consists of me achieving my goals in life. One of those goals is to continue with my degree to become a health manager. One of my quotes that I would say depict who I am is "I will never say i cant i will only say i have tried and conquered or i have tried and failed". I will continue to thrive for everything that I want in life and stay humble on my journey!!!
