Danaga Turner (10)
2020 has been a hard year for everyone, and for sophomore Danaga Turner, it impacted her ability to get a job, something that can impact students- especially sophomores like Turner- who are trying to save up money to pay for a car or make car payments. This is exactly what Turner was trying to do when the pandemic struck. She wanted to work with her sister who works in the kitchen, cooking for a nursing center. This profession, along with her grandfather’s, who also works with people, have led Turner to want to help people in her future. She aims to be an ultrasound technician where she will work directly with special equipment to help patients not only with pregnancies, but also to help detect heart and vascular diseases.
“They always are taking care, of people so I thought it would be interesting to look into something like this where I could help people, because originally I wanted to be a therapist because my friends say I’m good at talking to people, but something my teacher said discouraged me from that so now I moved on to ultrasound technician,” said Turner.
