One of my proudest moments in life was sharing this moment with my parents. My parents sacrificed so much for us & I took advantage of the opportunities I had to make them & myself proud. College was a time in my life where I found myself & grew so much from all the experiences I found myself in from the classroom to personal relationships. 

I could never imagine missing out on these experiences and ultimately this moment I had with my parents to celebrate our achievements. That’s why I stay on top of my health, especially cervical health. I’ve seen illnesses affect those around me. Access to services such as Pap screenings should never be the reason you miss out on everything life has to offer. Pap tests help boss women like me prevent cervical cancer. Recent guideline changes could take away pap screenings from young women. Everyone deserves to be present for moments like these.
