What is your idea of perfect happiness?
My idea of perfect happiness is being able to push myself to be successful in all ways possible, but being able to help out others along the way, knowing that anything I do for someone else may positively affect them in a way I could never imagine. My perfect happiness roots from my desire to help others because I have been blessed to be able to live the life I have. If everyone worked to help others and not just themselves, the world would be a happier place.

Emily Cannon is an instructor in ISU’s School of Nursing. She has inspired me to become the best nurse I can possible be.

Someday I hope to be at least half the nurse she is. She truly is an inspirational person.

What does BLUE mean to you?
To me, “BLUE” represents a body of water made up of thousands of unique individuals from all around the United States and other parts of the world, who all offer different talents, views, and educational desires and blend together as one body; a body that is able to proudly say that I belong to a family of “BLUE,” and no matter what road we all take following graduation, we will always be a part of the same body of water that prepared us to achieve our dreams. This meaning of “BLUE” is the core of Sycamore pride.
