Hadja Barry’s family is from West Africa.  When Hadja graduated from high school, she worked at a day care center because she enjoys helping others.  She decided that healthcare was a field worth looking into since she wanted to help others and begin a career with the potential to move up in the future.  Hadja’s mother is a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) and Hadja decided to follow in her footsteps with the hope of becoming a Registered Nurse down the road.  Hadja writes, “I just don’t want a job—I want a career! I am the oldest of four and putting a burden on my parents isn’t something I want to do.”  Hadja applied to Central Scholarship in hopes of earning a scholarship to help pay for CNA/GNA training.   We awarded Hadja with help from the Kenneth S. Battye Charitable Trust and Hadja completed her CNA/GNA certificate training this year.  She is pictured with her father above.
