Hi everyone! Horray! 3500 sales on Etsy in 2 years! THANK YOU ALL! What a great accomplishment for me! Etsy sends us reminders when we hit milestones so this one I was excited about.
I haven't blogged in so long! I figured I would let you know what I have been up to! As many of you know I graduated with my Master's in Nursing in December! I am currently in the process of studying and getting ready to take my boards ANCC. It is a 4 hour long exam that will grant me certification to practice as an FNP. After that is applying for my DEA and NPI. So many things need to line up before I can officially be hired and start working. I am just taking it slow and focusing on studying for my boards. I am not picky with jobs but hoping I will find something that will be family oriented.
On another note I have been involved with the beginnings of Hmong Nurses Association and part of the core group that has been organizing the beginning meetings in Wisconsin. Elections took place on January 26, 2018th for the officer positions. I was not planning on holding a position because of family and my new job I may be starting soon. But Mai emailed me and asked if I would be able to run as secretary. I thought long and hard about it again and decided I would give a go with this amazing nurses. This will be a 2 year term and I am hoping I will be able to assist in anything that is needed. So much to think about as be will be the first group to lay the foundation for the Hmong Nurses Association Wisconsin Chapter.
It's like starting my business all over again. Thinking about all the legality details that need to be put in place for the next group that will be taking over as well and thinking about how we will make a difference in the community. I am excited to be working with these smart amazing ladies.
Another event I may be attending as long everything works out is the “I Am Hmoob” event at the UW-Milwaukee campus on Saturday, March 30th.
"Hmong Student Association is hosting theirannual “I Am Hmoob” event at the UW-Milwaukee campus on Saturday, March 30th.“I Am Hmoob” is a cultural event that the students host every year to bringlife, love, and culture to the community through local artists and talents andto promote higher education."
Either way if I don't make it to this event I have sent along 2 surprise coffee mugs and a shirt for raffle prizes! So make sure if you are free that day to go support these talented students. You'll have to chance to win many other prizes and have so much fun!
Another organization I have been a part of is the Wisconsin Hmong Association Inc. Miss Hmong Madison Court. Currently they have calendars for sale as fundraising for their events they will be hosting in this year.
"Monthly calendar starting from March 2019 to February 2020. Calendars will be available no later than end of February,2019. Calendars are $20 each. No payment is required for pre-order.
