The King’s Daughters and Sons (KDS) is an interdenominational Christian service organization with the International Headquarters located in Chautauqua, New York. It is comprised of approximately 4000 members, about 250 or so of whom are under the age of 18.
As Thanksgiving weekend approaches in the U.S. you may have received suggestions on how to prepare for the celebration, from guest lists, menus and centerpieces to football schedules. You may also have seen one of the many lists of “Don’ts” being circulated in the media.
“Don’t be the relative that brings the uninvited guest.” “Don’t talk politics.” “Don’t offer to bring a dish and then show up with something completely different.” “Don’t serve jellied cranberry sauce.”
It seems like reasonable advice except for the last one, jellied cranberry sauce from a can is a tradition in my family!
Thank you so much for choosing me as a recipient of your scholarship! It is a huge blessing. I am honored!
The story I would like to share with you of when I have been touched by an experience within the medical field is from this past May:
I had the opportunity to attend a surgical clinic at Clinica Ezell in Guatemala for a week with Health Talents International. It was a week full of various general and GYN surgeries. I was able to experience pre-op, post-op and OR nursing. I worked 8p-4p, 4p-12a and 12a-8p shifts. The time I was able to spend with RNs, surgeons, anesthesiologists, translators, surgical techs and other members of the medical field was so inspiring.
