“Your 20’s are your selfish years when we should be extra selfish about our health. I’m 22 and having access to a Pap test will allow me to take control over my health sooner than later.

January is Cervical Cancer Awareness Month and it has shown me the importance of pap smears and why young women like me should take it.

A Pap smear test is a procedure to test for cervical cancer in women. The earlier the procedure is done, the greater chance to detect cervical cancer and cure it!

In the future, I would like to accomplish many goals. One of those is to maintain and grow my personal brand and my photography business. I also hope to have a family and children. One of the best ways to accomplish my goals is to utilize cervical screenings. Cervical screenings can help protect my reproductive health and prevent cervical cancer. Having access to cervical screenings will make sure I am safe and my health stays intact.”
