Hi my name is Danesha Aiken-Stocker. I am 21 years old and currently a student at Orangeburg Technical College. I am currently preparing for the Registered Nursing Program as I plan on being a psychiatric-mental health nurse. I never thought about becoming a nurse until my senior year in high school.
