Carlos Becerra is attending the Nursing Program at DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois. Originally he was in the pre-med program but while at a hospital he saw what registered nurses do. He got excited about nursing when he realized that it is truly about patient care and very hands-on work. Carlos credits his grandmother, who was a nurse in Mexico, as the person that sparked his interest in medicine, math and science. Having been raised in Mexico, becoming fluent in English was his first obstacle while in college.
