Claudia dreams of becoming a dentist. She chose to be apart of the healthcare industry because she wants a career that can empower her to help people. Currently Claudia lives at home with her parents, her brother and sister, both of whom are college age as well, and her daughter. In order to afford her tuition and contribute her part to the household income, Claudia works thirty hours a week in addition to attending her university classes. With a student loan, she plans on purchasing a computer and her school books. With a computer Claudia shares that she would be able to complete her school work far more efficiently. Between her hours at work, her time at school, and caring for her daughter, Claudia has little time to spare. With formal training in dentistry, she expects to find a stable career—one that can help her find financial independence for her and her daughter.
