    I was studying to become a psychologist.

    However I changed my mind for various reasons. I plan to switch my classes and all to get ready to go into a nursing school/program. I want to work in a hospital as a nurse.

    So, my teacher suggested over the phone

    that I find a steady job before I make my Italian restaurant. So I thought of what I wanted to do. I want to become a pediatric nurse OR a family doctor.
