When I first moved to Wilmington in August of 2015, I didn’t know what was in store for me other than school, I soon got a job was a CNA/Caregiver at Davis, where I made my first real friend, Ms. Champion. I had 3 years to get to know this amazing woman and I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world! She assured me that I can do anything I want, because she believes in me, even if nobody else does!
