Kingsborough Community College ASAP
2010 New York Needs You (NYNY) Fellow
My name is Kelly Olson, and I am from a relatively diverse neighborhood in Brooklyn called Old Mill Basin. I am currently attending Kingsborough Community College, and after the summer, I will be in my second year of school. As of right now, I am a Liberal Arts major. Once I graduate from Kingsborough, I plan on attending either Binghamton University or Stonybrook University for Nursing. I have wanted to be a nurse since I could remember; helping others is something I love to do. And I know that the New York Needs You (NYNY) Fellowship will enable me to do just that. The Fellowship will help me become the person I want to be; a leader with strong conviction. Being chosen as one of the NYNY Fellows is a great accomplishment. I know that by being in this program, I will be able to network successfully in the real world. Being a Fellow means improving myself in every sense of the word when it comes to social networking, ensuring an effective career path, and being a stronger person in general. Having someone assist me every step of the way is just another perk that comes with the Fellowship. I feel at the end of the program I will be able to give back to New York, just as the NYNY Fellowship has given this opportunity to me.
