June 2020

My name is Ma’Lajah Forman I am enrolling into Midlands technical college this year for phlebotomy. I love animals (preferably dogs). On my downtime when I’m not at school or work, I like to spend time alone.  I love the peace and quiet and reading a good book! I used to cheer on an All-Star team called Plus Royalty.  There, I was a flyer and occasionally a base for the younger/ smaller girls. My goal in life is to become very successful.  Growing up, I never had stability in my life.  Now that I’m older, I want to give my future self the life I truly deserve. My dream is to achieve my RN degree.  I want to then achieve my BSN and work in a hospital, (preferably for children). So far, I have accomplished graduating high school and now being admitted into my college of choice! I know this may sound silly but one of my accomplishments is to have my own apartment and car, I work hard towards those things each and every day.
