Nina, a 2017 award recipient, left an abusive relationship and provides support for her daughter and her sick father. Nina knew her hope for a better life depended on her ability to finish school and build her career. With the help of Soroptimist’s LYD award Nina was able to complete her BS degree in nursing.

“I am completing my skills clinical at UNC Hospital Chapel Hill. I really enjoy taking care of my patients and I can’t wait to finish school and start working as a nurse.” -Nina, 2017 LIVE YOUR DREAM Award recipient.
