Portrait of Angelia

Some people are just beautiful both inside and out.

It was just a pleasure to know someone like Angelia who was a registered nurse working in a long-term care facility in Ridgecrest, California, USA. When asked if geriatric nursing was her niche in life, Angelia responded,  “I just enjoy helping people in general . It wouldn’t matter what I am doing.”

Angelia, however, admitted to a goal: to work at, in pediatric oncology at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. She had volunteered with Children’s Hospital as a summer camp counselor every year for six years. Angelia said that the cancer patients participated in all the same activities that any normal child would: archery, hiking, riding horseback riding, arts and crafts and swimming . “It’s just a fun summer camp.”

Angelia believed, based on her performance record as a volunteer, it would not be difficult to get a job there in the future.
