Juliet Nnaji, a Nursing Scholar from North Las Vegas, Nevada supported by the Comprehensive Cancer Centers of Nevada, is deeply motivated by her passion for health and helping others. Her joy in aiding both her local and global communities is inspiring, and volunteering has become her beloved hobby. In her home country of Nigeria, her community volunteering brought her to remote areas where she administered vital deworming treatments to over 1,000 schoolchildren and facilitated the installation of a borehole for clean water. Upon arriving in the US, Juliet continued her volunteer work by distributing food to community members and aiding the homeless. Juliet’s leadership aptitude is innate, evidenced by her ease in guiding others during her community service. Open-mindedness, creativity, and strong communication skills enabled her to delegate tasks and manage conflicts effectively. As a Nursing Scholar, Juliet envisions applying her leadership and compassionate skills to make a positive impact in healthcare. She is enrolled in the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program at the Henderson campus.
