I am who I am today because of every sacrifice that I’ve made for me, for my kids. And I want them to see that when you work hard, you can have or be whatever you want to be.

Juliana lives in North Carolina with her husband and two children. As of December 2021, she left her job as an ER nurse during the height of COVID so the family has had to make some sacrifices and adjust to a new normal. Despite the challenges, she hopes her children know that she and her husband will do anything to make sure her kids have the bright future they deserve.
